Colorado Springs Weather Info
Colorado Springs weather is largely impacted by the Rocky Mountains just to its west. During the summer, down sloping “Chinook” winds result in warm temperatures. Winters can be snowy at times but far less than some of the surrounding areas.
A little known fact about Colorado Springs weather is the frequent lightning which occurs over the Colorado sky. The city ranks as one of the hot spots in the nation for lightning strikes per year.
