First Snowfall for the Plains?

With a very warm September, October and first week of November in the books, there will be a more winter like feel to the weather across south central and southeast Colorado into the upcoming weekend, as a series of fast moving weather systems is expected to bring much in colder air and possibly the first snowfall to portions of the southeast plains. 

Although the mountains and northern portions of El Paso County have already seen some snowfall this fall, the official observation sites for Colorado Springs and Pueblo have yet to see any snow.  The average date of receiving the first measurable snowfall (0.1 inch or greater) of the season since 1948 for Colorado Springs and Pueblo are October 17th and November 5th, respectfully.  The latest date on record for receiving the first measurable snowfall of the season for Colorado Springs and Pueblo are November 27th, 2008 and December 10th, 1963, respectfully.
