Today (December 2nd)  the Colorado Springs Airport recorded 0.2 inches of snow through the morning and early afternoon. This marks the first time Colorado Springs has seen measurable snowfall this Fall and Winter season and sets a new record for the latest date for the first measurable snowfall of the season in Colorado Springs.  The previous record for the latest first measurable snowfall of the season was November 28th, 2010, when 0.2 inches of snow was recorded at the Colorado Springs Airport. 

Pueblo has yet to see measurable snow fall at the official observation site at the Pueblo Memorial Airport, as only a trace of snow was also recorded on November 17th, as a weather system lifted north and east across the southeastern Colorado Plains.  However, the current record for the latest first measurable snowfall of the season in Pueblo is December 10th, 1963, when 1.4 inches was recorded.

One inch of snow was recorded at the Alamosa  Airport on November 27th, 2016.  This was the first measurable snowfall at the official observation site for the city of Alamosa. This, however, was not the latest first measurable snowfall on record, which remains December 9th, 2012, when 3.3 inches of snow was recorded.
