Public Information Statement

Statement as of 2:59 AM MST on December 07, 2016


... Today in Metro Denver weather history...

2-17 in 1939... more than 2 weeks of unseasonably warm weather
        made the month the 3rd warmest on record. Seven daily
        temperature records were set... including the all time
        record high temperature for the month of 79 degrees on
        the 5th. Daytime highs were balmy with 14 days in the
        60's and 70's. Low temperatures dipped to freezing or
        below on only 5 days. The period was dry with only a
        trace of snow on the 12th.
3-15 in 1972... a protracted cold spell held an icy grip on Metro
        Denver when maximum temperatures never reached above
        freezing for 10 consecutive days from the 3rd through
        the 12th and minimum temperatures dipped below zero on
        eleven consecutive days from the 5th through the 15th.
        Daily low temperature records were set with 15 degrees
        below zero on the 5th... 17 degrees below zero on the 6th...
        and 18 degrees below zero on the 10th. Daily record low
        maximum readings were set with 3 degrees on the 6th and
        6 degrees on the 9th. The very cold temperatures were
        caused by 3 to 5 inches of snow cover and a Canadian air
        mass.
5-7 in 1978... a major storm dumped heavy snow across Metro Denver.
        At Stapleton International Airport... snowfall totaled 8.5
        inches... northeast winds gusted to 46 mph... and temperatures
        plunged from a high of 49 degrees on the 5th to a low of
        only 6 degrees on the 6th. Maximum temperature of 6 degrees
        on the 7th was a new daily record low maximum reading. Most
        of the snow... 6.7 inches... fell on the 5th.
5-8 in 1983... high winds occurred in and near the foothills each
        day. Wind gusts to 63 mph were registered in Golden Gate
        Canyon on the evening of the 5th. On the evening of the
        6th... winds knocked down trees... snapped power lines... and blew
        out windows across Metro Denver. Gusts were clocked to 102
        mph in southwest Metro Denver... while wind gusts to 38 mph
        were recorded at Stapleton International Airport. On the
        7th... winds overturned a tractor trailer near Castle Rock.
        After midnight on the 8th... gusts to 97 mph were reported in
        southeast Boulder. Wind speeds of 60 to 70 mph were
        reported in other parts of Metro Denver.
6-7 in 1953... high winds buffeted the eastern foothills. Wind
        gusts to 80 mph occurred on Lookout Mountain. In Denver
        winds gusted to 65 mph. Damage in Boulder totaled 15
        hundred dollars.
7 in 1897... west winds were sustained to 53 mph with gusts to
        66 mph. The Chinook winds warmed the temperature to a
        high of 62 degrees... the warmest day of the month.
      In 1957... a vigorous cold front produced a dust storm as it
        moved south across Metro Denver. West-northwest wind gusts
        to 59 mph were recorded at Stapleton Airport where the
        surface visibility was briefly reduced to 1/2 mile in
        blowing dust. Light snowfall of only 0.8 inch followed
        the passage of a secondary Canadian cold front.
      In 1958... the worst wind storm in several years caused 10
        thousand dollars damage in Boulder where wind gusts were
        estimated to 75 mph.
      In 1977 winds up to 115 mph were reported in the Boulder
        area where one house was unroofed and another damaged.
        One woman was knocked down by the wind and injured.
        Several families were evacuated from homes in Boulder.
        Damage to trailers and motor vehicles was widespread.
        West winds gusted to 54 mph at Stapleton International
        Airport where the Chinook winds warmed the temperature
        to a high of 64 degrees.
      In 1987... strong winds buffeted the Front Range foothills.
        A peak gust to 93 mph was recorded at the National center
        for atmospheric research in Boulder. Nearby... a metal shed
        was blown over a fence into a tree two houses away. Wind
        gusts of 70 to 80 mph were common in Boulder.
      In 1988... 4 to 8 inches of snow fell across Metro Denver and
        caused traffic gridlock conditions on area highways. The
        3.9 inches of snow at Stapleton International Airport caused
        two-hour flight delays. Northeast winds gusted to 25 mph.
      In 2005... a brief cold snap resulted in record breaking
        temperatures. The low temperature of 13 degrees below zero
        was a record minimum for the date. The high temperature of
        only 3 degrees was a record low maximum for the date. The
        cold temperatures were accompanied by 1.4 inches of light
        snow that was measured at Denver Stapleton overnight on the
        6th and 7th.
7-9 in 1919... an apparent Arctic cold front brought extreme cold
        and light snow to the city. Snowfall totaled only 2.5
        inches on the 7th and 8th. Temperatures dipped to lows
        of 14 degrees below zero on the 8th and to 20 degrees below
        zero on the 9th. Both readings were daily record minimums.
        High temperatures were only 4 degrees on the 8th and 7
        degrees on the 9th.
      In 1923... a major storm dumped 13.5 inches of snowfall on
        downtown Denver. The apparent Post-frontal snowfall
        started during the late afternoon of the 7th and continued
        through the evening of the 9th. Temperatures dipped from a
        high of 66 degrees on the 7th with west winds sustained to
        35 mph to a low of only 14 degrees on the 9th... with north
        winds sustained to 25 mph.
