Hotchkiss Weather & Climate

West-central Colorado has a four-season climate that is either semi-arid or alpine, depending on location. Places that are just a short distance apart can have different weather. Valley areas have a semi-arid climate, while the mountains have an alpine climate. The wettest season in western Colorado is usually winter, while June is the driest month. Summers are mild in the mountains, sometimes with a high of only around 60 degrees F. Thunderstorms are possible, and sometimes cause the temperature to drop dramatically. At the higher elevations, winters are cold with lots of snow, but with abundant sunshine in between storms. Lower areas on western slope of the Rockies have summer temperatures similar to those on the plains - hot and dry.
