Pueblo, Colorado breaks 102-year-old snowfall record

Breaks record set in 1917, with more snow – and cold! – on the way. Temps dropping to 2 degrees (-16.7C).

 

Monday’s snowfall of 3.8 inches broke the old record of 2.9 inches set in 1917,  said Eric Petersen, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

On Tuesday, snow continued to fall across the area most of the day.

Petersen said with overnight snowfall, Tuesday snow totals were expected to reach 3 to 7 inches in the city.

He said more than a foot of snow was expected south along Interstate 25 in Rye and Colorado City.

The forecast called for an additional inch or less of snow on Wednesday.

Tuesday’s overnight temperatures were expected to reach a low of 2 degrees, Petersen said.
