It took a while, but finally, it snowed in Denver this month. After a 30-day snow drought, Denver saw its first measurable snowfall of January on Monday night. The city saw 0.5 inches of snow at its official observation site at Denver International Airport, according to the National Weather Service office in Boulder, Colorado. Denver averages 6.6 inches of snow each January, so it was unusual for the city to go so long without snowfall. A couple rounds of lighter snow could impact Denver on both Wednesday and Thursday, though neither is expected to produce more than a dusting or perhaps an inch of snow either day. Warmer weather will return to the area on Saturday, with high temperatures rising as high as near 70 degrees on Sunday afternoon. That'd be about 25 degrees above average - and a sure bet to measure any snow that fell on the Mile High City this week.
