COLORADO SPRINGS — A rare winter storm brought several inches of fresh snow to the Winter Olympics this past week.

While the snow is a welcomed sight, blizzard-like conditions resulted in the cancellation of several alpine events.

Beijing on average only sees around 1-2" of snow during the entirety of winter as most precipitation here falls in the summer when the monsoon is active.

Let's dive in with a closer look at February climatology for the host Olympic city and Colorado Springs, AKA, Olympic City U.S.A.
