How Much Snow Does Colorado Get in March?

Home > March > How Much Snow Does Colorado Get in March?

We entered the month of March, experienced Daylight Saving Time, and are beginning to enjoy the extra sun and bit of warmth! It might appear as if spring is around the corner, but how much snow does Colorado really get in March?

March in Colorado usually does not bring flower blossoms and greenery, but rather another big snowstorm or two!

March Snowfall in Colorado

Denver’s average high temperature in March is around 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and the chance of precipitation (rain or snow) averages 18%. In Breckenridge, the average high is only 38 degrees, with precipitation (usually snow) averaging 21%.

Colorado’s March may be a month of transition from winter to spring, but for most of the state, March is the snowiest month! The average snow fall in the month of March has been consistently steady with an average of about 12 inches in Denver and even more in the mountains. This 12 inches represents 33% of all the snow that Colorado gets throughout the winter season.
