Coming Soon! A Brand New Colorado Climate Center Web Site!!!

The climate of Colorado is fascinating in every way.  Being located as a mid-latitude interior continental state (and having the highest average elevation in the United States), combined with complex topography, results in dramatic climate differences from place to place and from year to year.   From the Great Plains of eastern Colorado to the high peaks of the Rockies and the Continental Divide, to the valleys, canyons and plateaus of western Colorado,  the various climates are each very different.

This website is hosted and maintained by the Colorado Climate Center, which is part of the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Several sources of climate data are featured, along with links to other resources.  Please contact us if you have any questions or need additional assistance.
