... Today in Metro Denver weather history...
15-19 in 1906... rain on 5 consecutive days totaled 1.61 inches.
A thunderstorm occurred on the 17th. High temperatures
ranged from 48 degrees on the 16th to 65 degrees on the
15th. Low temperatures were in the lower to mid 40's.
16-19 in 1971... a record breaking early fall snow storm caused
extensive damage to trees and utility lines. The heavy wet
snow occurred with little wind... but caused record breaking
cold temperatures for so early in the season. Snowfall
totaled 15.6 inches at Stapleton International Airport
with most of the snowfall... 12.0 inches... occurring on the
17th. This was the heaviest first snow of the season.
The maximum snow depth on the ground was 13 inches.
Record low temperatures were set on three consecutive days:
31 degrees on the 17th... 23 degrees on the 18th... and 20
degrees on the 19th... which was also a new all-time record
minimum for the month at that time. Record low maximum
temperatures were set on 4 consecutive days: 48 degrees
on the 16th... 35 degrees on the 17th... 40 degrees on the 18th...
and 42 degrees on the 19th.
18-19 in 1955... heavy rains caused flash flooding across portions of
Metro Denver. Rainfall totaled 1.71 inches at Stapleton
19 in 1955... hail stones to 2 1/2 inches in diameter were
reported north of Denver. The large stones broke many
In 1963... hail to 3/4 inch in diameter fell in Westminster.
In 1983... an unusually strong cold front roared through
Metro Denver during the afternoon hours. At Stapleton
International Airport... the temperature dropped 51 degrees...
from a sunny 86 degrees to a snowy 35 degrees... in just 7
hours. Strong winds and a wall of blowing dust followed
the front. Northeast winds gusting to 36 mph briefly
reduced the surface visibility to 1 mile in blowing dust
at Stapleton International Airport where only a trace of
snow fell later.
In 1996... high winds gusting to 84 mph were measured at
Golden Gate Canyon in the foothills west of Denver.
West winds gusted to only 25 mph at Denver International

Area forecast discussion National Weather Service Denver/Boulder Colorado 336 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 Short term...(today through tonight ) issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 Current high pressure ridge axis is now over eastern Colorado with a continued dry and stable airmass in place. During the day today...the ridge will flatten and shift into the Central Plains as a weak trough sweeps across the northern plains states. An associated weak cold front will push southward over northeast Colorado this morning as winds shift northeast. Current surface observations and radar imagery showing front moving across southeast Wyoming and should be through cys around 11z. Not much cold air behind the front but should be a few degrees cooler than Thursday with weak upslope flow this afternoon. Overall moisture levels will slowly increase this afternoon and evening on the tail end of this trough. Most of the shower activity will be in the mountains and higher terrain of the cys ridge. Could see a few showers/storms drift off the hills and onto the plains. Overall coverage over lower elevations will be isolated and mainly not until late afternoon/evening hours. Long term...(saturday through thursday) issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 An upper high and ridge are over the County Warning Area Saturday through Sunday night. The flow aloft is west-northwesterly Saturday and Saturday night...then westerly Sunday and Sunday night. For much of the time weak upward synoptic scale energy is prognosticated for the County Warning Area. The low levels winds are prognosticated to be upslope on Saturday...then southeasterly on Sunday with a Denver cyclone a good bet. Moisture certainly increases through the periods...with quite a bit prognosticated Sunday night into the extended periods. The precipitable water values are prognosticated in the 0.40 west to 1.00 inch east Saturday and Saturday night. By Sunday they increase into the 0.60 to 1.30 inch range form west to east...with over an inch over much of the plains. The boundary layer dew points range from the middle 40s f west to widespread 50s f over the plains Saturday and Saturday night. By Sunday and Sunday night...60s f readings are proged to cover the plains. There is some cape over the County Warning Area late day Saturday...mostly over the foothills and Palmer Ridge. There is a bit more prognosticated for late day Sunday and it is over most of the County Warning Area. The quantitative precipitation forecast fields have no measurable rainfall for the County Warning Area Saturday morning...then some over the high country and Palmer Ridge by afternoon and evening. After midnight...there is quite a bit proged for the plains. The entire County Warning Area has measurable rainfall in place Sunday and Sunday night. For probability of precipitation will go with 20-40%s for the high country Saturday and Saturday evening. For overnight Saturday night and Sunday morning...20-30% probability of precipitation will be good for all the County Warning Area. Will up that into the 30-50% range the rest of Sunday and Sunday night. For temperatures...saturday's highs are 3-8 c cooler than today's expected highs. Sunday's look similar to saturday's. For the later days...Monday through Thursday...a weak upper trough is prognosticated over Colorado Monday into early Tuesday ..then upper ridging moves back in through Thursday of next week. The cooler temperatures and ample moisture from Sunday is prognosticated into early Tuesday morning. Moisture dries out and temperatures climb a bit for the rest of Tuesday through Thursday. && Aviation...(for the tafs through 12z Saturday morning) issued at 332 am MDT Friday Sep 19 2014 Healthy drainage winds early this am but will shift north and northeast between 14-16z. Expect most of the showers today will be confined to mountains. Could be an isolated storm that drifts over lower elevations but coverage not high enough to include in current tafs. && Bou watches/warnings/advisories... none. && $$ Short term...entrekin long term...rjk aviation...entrekin
