Morning photo: April come she will

Springtime in the Rockies?

The ice on Dillon Reservoir was mostly gone by late April, 2012, with a few berms of snow left on the shore at Pine Cove Campground, near Frisco, Colorado.

FRISCO — Weatherwise, April is always been one of the most dynamic months in the Colorado high country. Cold spring storms off the Pacific alternate with warm and sunny high pressure systems building from the Desert Southwest … and this year seems to be no exception, as the snow of the past few days is expected to give way to the warmest weather of the year, so far, in the coming week. But think back just two years ago, when Colorado (and much of the country) experienced a record-warm March, leading to summer-like conditions in April. It’s never a boring month!

April 2012 followed on the heels of a record-warm month and brought one of the earliest-ever melt-outs of Dillon Reservoir.

Where does the snow stop and the willow start?

And last year, it snowed right through April and into May, leaving the Gore Range looking pretty wintry late in the month.
