After such a rough snow season last year, we can’t help but be a little nervous about our upcoming season. Think about it: Mother Nature is pretty unpredictable. Just ask local meteorologists; predicting the weather here in Colorado isn’t easy! However, we’re staying optimistic and so are the weather gurus at Accuweather. This week, they released a nice forecast for this winter in Colorado. According to Accuweather, we’re going to have a much cooler fall. Other areas in the country will see a delay in cool air, while the Rockies could be at risk for early frosts and freezes. In fact, temperatures are expected to average 1 to 2 degrees below normal in the Rockies. But cooler fall temperatures aren’t the only good news for us. Accuweather seems to be confident Colorado and the Four Corners Region will be a hot spot for snow, especially early-season and mid-season. They say we should start seeing a good amount of snowfall early-to-mid October, which means a great snow pack, something we really didn’t have much of last year. Accuweather meteorologists also say we will see more snowfall, because the jet stream will be increasing across our area. So who’s ready for an early winter? I know we are!
