This April has proven to be drastically different compared to last year – all thanks to the snow.
Last April was the driest in Colorado history due to a lack of moisture and precipitation.
At this time last year, Colorado firefighters had just wrapped up the Lower North Fork Fire in Jefferson County and were nearly a month away from battling the High Park Fire in Larimer County.
Regardless of the snow, Poudre Fire Authority is still expecting more fires in the upcoming season.
Hot and dry weather combined with wind can quickly wipe out the moisture Larimer County has recently received.
