It's still Summer for 8 more days, but with Fall right around the corner, snow isn't far off from being a feature in our forecasts! Since the seasonal change is almost here it made us wonder what the earliest recorded snows were in Colorado Springs and Pueblo, so we looked it up!

The earliest trace of snowfall in Colorado Springs happened back on September 2nd in 1961! Now there must have been a big winter system moving through because the earliest measurable snowfall occurred the next day, September 3rd in 1961 with 4.2". It's pretty wild to have snowfall THAT early in the year, which is why it's the record for the Springs. The only way that could have happened would be if a very powerful cold front knocked temperatures back into the low 40s or 30s with that snow probably happening at night when temperatures were at their coldest.

For Pueblo, it's just a bit later than Springs but still very early into the year. The earliest trace of snow in Pueblo was on September 10th in 1898, over a century ago! The earliest measurable snowfall in Pueblo occurred on September 17th in 1971 with 7.3 inches recorded.
