We love the outdoors and working outside all year long here in the Denver Colorado area. What a beautiful place to live and work! Yard work in the nicer months and snow removal in the winter months give us cause to always monitor the weather. The weather directly effects what we do, how we dress, and what gear we select for the day. And, it effects our clients’ properties too. To stay informed of the weather, we sometimes refer to an American icon, The Old Farmer’s Almanac. This popular publication provides forecasts and other interesting information about the weather, astronomy, and gardening. These days, we just go online and view their website at: www.almanac.com Relevant for us is the long range forecasts for the upcoming winter. It’s nice and warm now, but first day of Fall is just around the corner. Even so, there is still plenty of time to plan ahead and get ready for the snow and ice, our most challenging weather.
According to almanac.com, Denver is right on the edge of the “High Plains Region” and the “Intermountain Region”. For the High Plains Region, they say “Snowfall will be above normal in the north and below normal elsewhere, with the snowiest periods in late November, mid- to late December, and mid- to late February.” And, for the Intermountain Region, they forecast “temperatures will be above normal, with precipitation a bit below normal”. There you have it. Nothing too exciting. Sort of vague. We can then reasonably hope for nothing too extreme which means minimal damage and minimal discomfort for the winter months ahead. However, you and I both know though around here, the weather does it’s own thing. It can change real fast. So for what it’s worth, bookmark and periodically review the Farmers Almanac long range winter forecast for the Denver area provided by here:
