Winter has finally approached. It’s the time of year to experience the pleasure of making snowmen, snow angels, and igloos. For those in school it is also the time of year where snow brings about the snow day. However, is winter really winter without the snow? Throughout the year, the climate has begun to change dramatically. Usually, it starts to snow in Denver around October or November. Unfortunately, this year, besides the freezing cold days, there still has been no sight of snow. According to the Colorado Avalanche Information Center, the reason for the lack of snowfall is due to “a ridge of high pressure along the west coast that is currently blocking or weakening storms as they come.” Furthermore, the National Weather Service’s climate predictions for the temperatures over the months of December, January, and February of 2017-2018 are above average. This means that if the weather forecasts are correct for the next few months going into the new year, Colorado’s drought may result in wildfires, and it will impact water sources in the mountains. In terms of Christmas this year, there are high chances that there will be little to no snow. Despite this disheartening fact, Christmas shall still be a thankful and joyous time around family and close friends where everyone exchanges gifts, drinks hot cocoa and listens to holiday cheers. Whether this year’s Christmas is white, stay warm and happy holiday’s to all.
