Red Feather Lakes Weather & Climate

North-central Colorado has a semi-arid, continental climate with cold, dry winters and hot, wet summers. On average, this area receives just over 17 inches of rain per year. Snowfall averages 60 inches per year, but many times the snow quickly melts during the daylight hours. Temperatures in winter are cold, but usually not bitterly cold. As with most of Colorado, the climate is termed as highland or mountain climate. Humidity is normally quite low, which means it feels cool, even on hot days. Warm, moist air from the south most frequently moves into the area during spring, causing thunderstorms. Frequent showers and thunderstorms continue well into summer. There may also be hot, dry spells in summer.
