Colorado Climate & Weather

Colorado Climate and Weather

Most of Colorado has a mountain climate with hot summer days and cold, snowy winters. But like the landscape, the weather can be extremely changeable, particularly during spring where large amounts of hail and windy conditions can flare up unexpectedly. Humidity is pleasantly low throughout the year. The snowy and cold winter in Colorado is the peak resort season as the slopes come alive with skiers and snowboarders, but the pleasant summers attract hikers, horse-riders, and climbers. The stormy spring is the least popular time to travel to Colorado. Thunderstorms occur in spring and summer with the most rainfall during July and August; but rain can fall at any time of year up in the mountains.
