With Spring in full swing, we'll soon see a transition from snow to thunderstorms and hail.

With more snow possible through Wednesday, we might not not be done with winter weather just yet.

If we do see any snow, it would come more than a week past our average last snowfall of the season.

That date is April 19th in Colorado Springs and April 13th in Pueblo.

For Pueblo, we go back to the year 2001, when 0.2" of snow was reported at the airport on May 21st.

Last year, both areas saw snow on April 16h. This year, we've surpassed that with measurable snowfall occurring on April 20th.

If we receive any additional snow over the next 24 hours, we'll see that date get pushed back.
