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

29-2 in 1954... a major storm dumped 10.1 inches of snowfall at
        Stapleton Airport. Most of the snow... 7.5 inches... fell on
        the 29th and 30th. The maximum snow depth on the ground
        was 5 inches on the 30th due to melting. No strong winds
        accompanied the storm.
30-1 in 1980... to the west of Denver... heavy rain changing to snow
        buried the foothills above 7 thousand feet in 4 to 8 inches
        of snow. Precipitation in the foothills ranged from 1 to 3
        inches... which caused some local flooding. Rain fell at
        lower elevations. Rainfall at Stapleton International
        Airport totaled 1.05 inches from the storm.
1 in 1902... northwest winds were sustained to 68 mph with
        gusts as high as 74 mph in the city during the early

        to 19 mph. Later in the afternoon... the dust receded to
        the east in advance of a rainstorm from the west.
      In 1988... very strong winds behind a vigorous cold front
        produced a blinding dust storm that closed I-70 east of
        Denver. Northeast winds over Metro Denver peaked to 45
        mph at Stapleton International Airport... but only kicked
        up some blowing dust. The temperature plunged from a
        high of 76 degrees at midday to 36 degrees at midnight as
        light rain changed to light snow.

        6 inches atop Crow Hill. Rain fell across Metro Denver.
1-2 in 1903... Post-frontal rain changed to light snow overnight...
        but totaled only 2.0 inches. This was the last snow of

        with gusts to 48 mph on the 1st.
1-5 in 1898... snowfall totaled 15.5 inches in downtown Denver.
        Most of the snow... 6.2 inches... fell on the 3rd. Most of
