Denver & Front Range: From 70s One Day To 2ft Of Snow & Crippling Blizzard The Next!

Written by on March 25, 2016 in United States of America, Winter 2015/16 with 0 Comments

Two days ago Denver received 13.1 inches of snow with a full fledged blizzard. That blizzard shut down DIA for the first time in 10 years while Colorado saw it’s largest power outage in history. Motorists were stranded in snow drifts on I-70.

Check out some of these incredible images captured by William Scherer and Meteorologist Chris Spears.

What’s amazing is that the day before upwards of 22 inches fell just west of Denver, the temperature hit 73 degrees. Warm ground and high sun angle didn’t defeat this storm.

There’s more to come….

GFS snow forecast through the next 5 days. Denver could well see an additional 4-8 inches with two more systems, the first moving through today into tomorrow and the next mid next week.

Meanwhile yesterday saw not just a remarkable temperature contrast between Toronto and New York but from one side of Lakes Erie and Ontario to the other.
