Colorado's Spring Forecast

The 2024 Farmer's Almanac says that springtime in Colorado may feel a bit out of sync this year. Cool and wet conditions will dominate the spring season, making it feel like it's taking longer for warmer temps to arrive. The Almanac indicates most of the country will experience a 'Polar Coaster Spring' with cloudy and cool conditions to start the season.

Late snow and colder temperatures may affect portions of Colorado through late April this year. Temps are predicted to warm slowly in May, and the forecast could include some storms that may produce severe weather.

Colorado's Last Frost

The Farmer's Almanac is predicting the final frost of the season around the first week of May. This will be the time when overnight temps stop dipping below freezing. Denver, Pueblo, and Grand Junction can expect a final frost by May 3rd or 4th. Watch for the swan's neck to break up on the Grand Mesa, and you can start tending your garden.

Prepping for Spring Storms in Colorado
