23 Nov 2021, 11:10 am

DENVER, CO – It has been 216 days since Denver has seen snowfall. The last measurable snow Denver had was back on April 21, 2021. Although this is not the longest snow-free streak it does rank as the 5th longest stretch without snow; according to observations that are made at the Denver International Airport (DIA) observation site.

Not only has it been a long stretch of snow-free days, it has also been a record-breaking season. As of November 22nd, Denver has yet to see snow which means it is now in the #1 spot for latest first measurable snow. But when will Denver see snow? Well there is a very low chance on Wednesday for precipitation but honestly models do not look promising for the rest of the month!


Alongside the National Weather Service, our in-house forecast models are highlighting an isolated chance for precipitation on Wednesday for the Denver metro. For most of the area, temperatures remain above freezing on Wednesday.

Snow may be possible for those farther south.

As we look into the evening hours, some of the cloudiness on our Baron 3KM resolution models may bring an opportunity for a few light flurries but likely not enough to bring our first snow.

Our best chance for accumulative precipitation stays out into the Rocky Mountains.

Denver is not the only place that has been lacking in the snow department. Other ski resorts across the state have had to delay openings for Thanksgiving weekend due to the lack of snow.

TELLURIDE, CO – According to the Telluride Ski Resort, because of warmer weather the opening day has been delayed.

The good news? Fresh snow is on the way! For more on the system that will bring snow to the southern Rockies and San Juans, click here.
