Snow in Early December

I am looking to travel around the Colorado Springs area in early December. Should I expect snow or is it rare to have snow on the ground during that time period.

In town, maybe not but in the foothills and mountains at elevations above the City, Yes.

The weather at lower elevations in Colorado changes from 1 day to the next. It's not uncommon to have snow in December, but it rarely lasts more than a day. Some of the fast moving winter storms can cause some serious issues along the I-25 corridor North of Colorado Springs, but its rarely bad in town.

Our heavier snow months tend to be Feb/Mar/Apr

In the past two years we've had snow in May and shorts-wearing weather in December. You can't trust the weather reports around here. You never know what you'll get.

Suppose to be a fairly light winter. But like stated in other posts, you never know from one day to the next. Mountains are getting a good amount right now.

When my family moved there schools and the City closed in September from a snow. Power lines were down and the snow plows were still in storage. After the desert and Yuma AZ I thought I was in heaven.. snow shoeing in the City in Sept.

This year we have not had much of any snow, even north of the Springs. However, snow can come at any time from Sept - May. That being said, snow in the "cold months" Dec - Feb is rarely very large and usually melts the next day.

I can't believe we've only gotten the amount of snow that we've gotten.. It's the Rocky Mountains for goodness sakes..

We've been here for about 21 years and the weather seems to have really changed, with less snow and cold weather each year for several years. Seems like we haven't had near as many significant snowfalls either. Sure has been cold off and on!
