January 2017 is in the books and what a month it was! We saw a little bit of everything from snow to strong and damaging Chinook winds. Just another roller coaster month in Castle Rock's weather history.
January 2017 Finished Cooler and Only Slightly Drier Than Average
The month overall had big swings in tempreature but you'll notice the large dips to the below average in the first part of the month and later throughout the month. The finishing average temperature for January finished quite a bit cooler than average, mainly thanks to the strong arctic cold fronts that made their way into the area.
Snowfall was less impressive, but was just enough to be close to average. January is not historically a particularly snowy month for Castle Rock and many of the Palmer Divide cities.
