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

18-19 in 1975... snowfall totaled only 5.5 inches and north winds
        gusted to 35 mph causing some blowing snow at Stapleton
        International Airport... while a major blizzard struck
        southeastern Colorado.
      In 1985... 4 to 7 inches of snow fell across Metro Denver.
        Snowfall totaled 4.4 inches at Stapleton International
        Airport where north winds gusted to 23 mph.
      In 1991... another strong winter storm produced heavy snow
        over Metro Denver. Snowfall totaled 9.5 inches at
        Stapleton International Airport with 9 inches at Parker...
        and 8 inches in southeast Denver... Morrison... and Wheat
        Ridge. This second storm brought the 5 day (15th-19th)
        snowfall total at Stapleton International Airport to
        21.1 inches. The greatest depth of snow on the ground
        was 13 inches on the morning of the 19th. The adverse
        effects of the two storms were diminished by the lack
        of significant winds.
18-20 in 1930... a major storm dumped a total of 13.6 inches of
        snowfall over downtown Denver. Most of the snow... 9.4
        inches... fell on the 19th when north winds were sustained
        to 23 mph. This was the only measurable snow of the
        month. Temperatures hovered in the 20's and lower 30's.
      In 1956... an intense winter storm dumped 12.8 inches of
        snowfall on Metro Denver. Strong north-northeast winds
        gusting to 33 mph at Stapleton Airport frequently reduced
        the visibility to 1/2 mile in snow and blowing snow on the
        19th. Most of the snowfall... 10.7 inches... occurred on the
        19th.
19 in 1931... the first measurable snow of the season totaled
        only 1.0 inch in the city.
      In 1977... near-blizzard conditions caused some traffic
        accident injuries across Metro Denver. Only 1.3 inches
        of snow fell at Stapleton International Airport where
        northeast winds gusted to 28 mph.
19-21 in 1979... a heavy snowstorm buried most of Colorado under at
        least a foot of snow. Snowfall at Stapleton International
        Airport totaled 17.7 inches... the greatest snow depth since
        1946. Winds to 60 mph produced 5-foot drifts paralyzing
        the city as temperatures hovered in the 20's. While small
        airports closed... Stapleton remained open... but with long
        delays that snarled Thanksgiving Holiday traffic. Schools
        and businesses closed and postal deliveries were delayed.
        Almost all major highways leading out of Denver were closed
        to traffic for periods of time on the 20th and 21st. Most
        of the snow... 13.5 inches... fell on the 20th. At Stapleton
        International Airport... north winds gusted to 35 mph on the
        20th and to 38 mph on the 21st.
