DENVER (KDVR) — Snow is forecast in the high country and on the Palmer Divide Monday night through Tuesday morning. Although Denver is not likely to measure snow, it would be one of the latest in history.
Denver’s latest snowfall was measured on June 2, 1951. The city has seen a trace of snowfall as late as June 12, though, which occurred in 1947.
In Boulder, the latest snowfall on record is June 12, 1947. That is the same date for Fort Collins as well.
Greeley’s (using the University of Northern Colorado site data) latest snowfall on record was measured May 20, 2001.
Clearly, any snow Monday night pushes rarity for this late in the season. Denver’s average last snowfall date is April 28.
In the past 10 years, the last snowfalls have been:
- April 16, 2020
- May 21, 2019
- April 24, 2018
- April 29, 2017
- April 30, 2016
- May 10, 2015
- May 12, 2014
- May 2, 2013
- April 3, 2012
- May 11, 2011
Data indicate the snow level may drop to 7,000 feet Monday night. That would mean snow for those on parts of the Palmer Divide and in mountainous portions of Boulder, Douglas, Jefferson and Larimer counties.
