... Today in Metro Denver weather history...

23-24 in 2000... the first snowstorm of the season brought heavy
        snow to areas in and near the foothills. While the
        heaviest snow fell north of Metro Denver... 6 inches were
        measured in Boulder... 4 inches at both Castle Rock and
        Morrison... but only 0.2 inch at the site of the former
        Stapleton International Airport where most of the
        precipitation fell as rain. At Denver International
        Airport where drizzle and rain fell on the 23rd...
        snowfall during the early morning of the 24th was
        estimated at 2.1 inches due to melting. The foothills
        west of Denver received more snow with 10 inches measured
        at Conifer... 9 inches 11 miles southwest of Morrison...
        8 inches atop Crow Hill... 7 inches at chief hosa... and
        5 inches at Ralston Reservoir.
24 in 1901... northwest winds were sustained to 50 mph with
        gusts as high as 57 mph in the city.
      In 1932... thunderstorm rainfall of only 0.11 inch was the
        only measurable precipitation for the month that year
        in the city.
      In 1986... a very strong wind storm roared across Metro
        Denver. Boulder was hit hardest. Winds peaked to 131 mph
        at the National center for atmospheric research. This is
        thought to be the highest wind gust ever recorded in Boulder
        during September. A wind gust to 118 mph was clocked on
        Davidson Mesa and to 92 mph near Niwot. Gusts of 70 to 80
        mph were common over all of Boulder where an estimated 70
        to 90 large trees were uprooted. About a dozen of them hit
        cars. Two walls of a building under construction were
        toppled and solar panels were blown off a house. Traffic
        lights and power lines were downed. Damage to power
        equipment alone was estimated at 100 thousand dollars.
        Wind gusts to 87 mph at Jefferson County Airport damaged
        two planes. A woman was seriously injured in Boulder.
        She suffered a fractured skull when struck by a falling
        tree limb. Trees were also downed in Louisville and
        Lafayette. West wind gusts to 45 mph were recorded at
        Stapleton International Airport.
