Historically March is the snowiest month along the front range, and the majority of the snowfall on the front range occurs with 10 percent of the snow events. However, if one keeps an eye on conditions the trip can be made with little concern. If a ten day forecast does not look good for the front range one can continue down I-35 and the toll roads to avoid the higher elevation areas of Colorado.

In years past we have left Wisconsin in the middle of January headed for the southwest.

I suggest you "bookmark" weather.com and intellicast.com on your computer and learn how to bring up 5 day forecasts.

If you look at map of the US interstate highways you will see that between you and Green Valley, AZ there are several what I call decision points: Des Moines, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and Albuquerque. At each of these junctions of two interstate highways you have two choices WEST or SOUTH.

I recommend that you make your decision on your route at these junctions as you are travelling.

Case in point. One winter we were heading to the southwest, when we got to Oklahoma City there was a big winter storm approaching from the west ... the weather forecast showed the storm path was going south of there ... so instead of heading south we continued westward on I-40 ... the road was clear as a bell all the way to Albuquerque and if we had gone south we would have had about 150 miles of skating rink quality ice to contend with ...

Don't count on previous weather....one year we got on I-40 near Albuquerque and it closed down because of a blizzard - the end of April!
