On Thursday, it was high 80s, sunny, and gorgeous. On Friday, it was cold, rainy, and miserable. By Saturday morning, it was cold, snowy, and once again gorgeous.
That was the scene in much of Colorado this past weekend as a large snowstorm hit the state, knocking out power for about 210,000 throughout the Denver area.
The highest snowfall reported hit Howard, Colorado, with approximately 28.5 inches landing, while Denver International Airport reported a total of only 2.3 inches. Boulder received a total of 6 inches.
Both Arapahoe Basin and Winter Park, the only two ski resorts in Colorado that were still open as of May 21st (Winter Park’s last day) reported a total of 16″, though 9News has the town of Winter Park’s total at only 7.3 inches.
The recent storm now sits in a six way tie for the latest snowfall in Denver history.
