March preview: Arrival of spring brings warmer temps but snow remains a significant threat

Thursday, March 1st, 2018 6:53am MDT

The month of February brought some relief to our snow season which up until then had been extremely anemic.  However, we still have a long ways to go to reach normal levels.

March usually offers healthy snowfall giving us an opportunity to add to those numbers.  While there is good snow potential in March, the month also typically brings much warmer temperatures.

March is historically Denver’s snowiest month and brings about 20% of our annual snowfall.  Heavy, wet spring snow storms can oftentimes bring the entire month’s snowfall total in one monstrous snow.

We also start the transition to spring and severe weather season and the month typically brings our first thunderstorms of the year.  Temperatures climb throughout the month and by the end our average daytime highs are near 60 degrees.
