March is traditionally the snowiest month of the year for Colorado.
In Colorado Springs, March is climatologically our snowiest month, and for Pueblo, it's the second snowiest.
In the Springs, March typically produces around 8" of snow. Pueblo averages a little under 6", with Canon City at 7.5".
In northern El Paso County, the town of Monument often measures snow in feet in March, with an average monthly snowfall of over 22".
It's only the second day of March, but we're already counting several inches of snow this month.
The Sunday night to Monday morning storm brought almost 5" of snow to Colorado Springs. Pueblo saw an underwhelming 0.2" of snow from the same storm.
Both areas saw below average snowfall last year in March, although Colorado Springs with 7.4" ended much closer to average than Pueblo did.
Looking at the latest from NOAA's Climate Prediction Center, most of El Paso and Pueblo counties falls into the normal category. This means a better chance of near average snowfall this month.
According to the map below, eastern parts of El Paso County, Pueblo County and the Plains have a higher probability of below average precipitation month. This below average bullseye extends east into Kansas and Nebraska.
Temperature wise...pretty much all areas east of the Rockies are favored to see above average temperatures.
Colorado appears to be the dividing line between average and warmer than the average weather this month. The bullseye this time for *warmest* (compared to average) March temperatures is across the Midwest, from Tennessee northward into Ohio and Michigan.
Notice that there's just a small sliver of below average probability over the Pacific Northwest.
