Penrose Weather & Climate

Central Colorado , in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, has a very complex climate. The valleys are classified as a semi-arid, continental climate, and the higher elevations are mountain-alpine climate. Humid microclimates may also exist in some places. Abundant sunshine and low humidity is typical in all areas. Summers are mild to warm, and thunderstorms can cause a sudden drop in temperature. Winters are cold and snowy, especially in the higher elevations of the Rocky Mountains. Solar radiation penetrates the thin atmosphere high in the mountains, which results in very pleasant temperatures during the winter. This is why skiers are often pictured in very light clothing, even though they're surrounded by snow.
