A Warm and Wet 2015 for Southern Colorado





2015 was a warm and wet year across south central and southeast Colorado. 2015 precipitation totals were bolstered by record setting late Spring and early Summer precipitation, which helped to end a multi-year drought across portions of southeast Colorado. With that said, 2015 has become one of the “Top 10”  warmest and or wettest years on record in Alamosa, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo, as well as for many other locales across south central and southeast Colorado.

Alamosa ended 2015 as the warmest year and the 14th wettest year on record. Colorado Springs ended 2015 as the 6th warmest and the 3rd wettest year on record.  Pueblo ended 2015 as the 6th warmest and the 9th wettest year on record.
