The Centennial State has seen a myriad of all-time cold records tumble this fall, and this week is continuing that trend towards cooler climes.
The 3.8 inches (9.7 cm) of snow that accumulated in Pueblo on Monday, October 28 comfortably eclipsed the city’s previous record for the date — the 2.9 inches (7.4 cm) from back in 1917. It also adds to the early-season inches already received during the first week of October.
For reference, Pueblo’s mean date for first measurable snowfall isn’t until Nov 6, according to weather.gov.
And yet more powder is forecast for the city on Wednesday, meaning this year will likely win third spot for snowiest October on record, surpassing the 8.2 inches (20.8 cm) that accumulated in October 1997 (solar minimum of cycle 22).
On Tuesday, Oct 29 –and a two hour drive due-north— heavy accumulating snow was responsible for either delaying or cancelling 800+ flights at Denver Int. Airport — half of DIA’s typical travel-day flights.
The airport reported 5.9 inches of snow as of 1PM Tuesday, bringing October’s total to 10.7 inches — DIA’s snowiest October since 2009 (solar minimum of cycle 23), and its 14th snowiest in record-books dating back 147 years.
Denver and the urban corridor from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins remains under a Winter Storm Warning through Wednesday, reports denver.cbslocal.com — most locations along the Front Range are expecting an additional 6 to 12 inches on the final day of October, adding to the month’s already crazy accumulations.
Furthermore, the city of Denver busted its all-time record-low-maximum temperature on Tuesday.
The daily high struggled to just 18F (-7.8C), according to NWS data, which smashed the previous record-low-max for Oct 29 — the 25F (-3.9C) from 1993.
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
