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

17-19 in 1908... a moist... heavy... wet snowfall totaled 13.0 inches in
        downtown Denver over the 3 days. Rain from early morning
        on the 17th changed to snow by late afternoon and continued
        through the late morning of the 19th. Due to temperatures
        in the 30's and melting... the most snow on the ground was
        only 5.0 inches at 6:00 PM on the 18th. Northwest to
        northeast winds were sustained between 12 and 20 mph during
        the storm. Precipitation totaled 1.82 inches.
18-23 in 2003... an extended warm spell resulted in 5 new temperature
        records. The high temperature of 84 degrees on the 18th
        equaled the record high for the date. High temperatures
        of 86 degrees on the 19th... 83 degrees on the 21st... and 84
        degrees on the 22nd were record highs for the dates. Low
        temperature of 49 degrees on the 23rd was a record high
        minimum for the date. Low temperatures during the period
        were in the 40's and lower 50's.
19 in 1887... northwest winds sustained to 42 mph were recorded
        in the city.
      In 1982... 3 to 6 inches of snow fell over northwest Metro

        Stapleton International Airport where northwest winds
        gusting to 48 mph kicked up some blowing dust shortly

        the 5 days. Rain changed to snow on the evening of the

        Temperatures during the storm were generally in the 20's.
