DENVER (KDVR) – Denver has the chance to see snow this Friday, so where does this rank in the latest snowfall for the city?
Models in the last few days have trended toward chances for snow in the Foothills and Palmer Divide, and a few flakes can even make it to the metro area on Friday night.
If DIA receives measurable snowfall on Friday it would be the eleventh latest snowfall on record. However, if snow lingers past midnight and into the morning of May 21, we’ll tie for the sixth latest snowfall on record.
