Denver Closes in on Snow-Free Record

12 Dec 2017, 2:56 pm

Two months without snow isn’t a big deal for most places.

But in Denver, Colorado, it’s unusual, and potentially record-breaking. The Mile High City is closing in on its record of 69 days without measurable snowfall, with 64 straight through Monday, making it the fourth-longest streak on record.

The record, by the way, is for consecutive days without measurable snowfall after the first snow of the season and going through the final one.

But, there are some snow chances on the horizon. A quick-hitting system arrives Wednesday night and into Thursday morning, bringing with it the chance for some light snow that could snap the skid.

The better chance for snow in Denver is on Saturday, as a stronger system dives in from the north. This one has a decent chance of snapping the skid, with most of the primary models showing accumulation on the order of 2-4″ in the Mile High City, with the potential for more than that.

But if neither of those snows come together, Denver will have a new – and unwanted – record of consecutive days without measurable snow.

In the meantime, Denver tied its record high of 69° on Tuesday.
