        15th. Low temperatures were in the lower to mid 40's.
16-19 in 1971... a record breaking early fall snow storm caused
        extensive damage to trees and utility lines. The heavy wet
        snow occurred with little wind... but caused record breaking
        cold temperatures for so early in the season. Snowfall
        totaled 15.6 inches at Stapleton International Airport
        with most of the snowfall... 12.0 inches... occurring on the
        17th. This was the heaviest first snow of the season.
        The maximum snow depth on the ground was 13 inches.
        Record low temperatures were set on three consecutive days:
        31 degrees on the 17th... 23 degrees on the 18th... and 20
        degrees on the 19th... which was also a new all-time record
        minimum for the month at that time. Record low maximum
        temperatures were set on 4 consecutive days: 48 degrees
        on the 16th... 35 degrees on the 17th... 40 degrees on the 18th...
        and 42 degrees on the 19th.
18-19 in 1955... heavy rains caused flash flooding across portions of
        Metro Denver. Rainfall totaled 1.71 inches at Stapleton
19 in 1955... hail stones to 2 1/2 inches in diameter were

      In 1983... an unusually strong cold front roared through
        Metro Denver during the afternoon hours. At Stapleton
        International Airport... the temperature dropped 51 degrees...
        from a sunny 86 degrees to a snowy 35 degrees... in just 7
        hours. Strong winds and a wall of blowing dust followed
        the front. Northeast winds gusting to 36 mph briefly
        reduced the surface visibility to 1 mile in blowing dust
        at Stapleton International Airport where only a trace of
        snow fell later.

        Golden Gate Canyon in the foothills west of Denver.
