This morning at 6:45 AM the National Weather Service declared the first snow in Denver and with a small amount of measurable snow we will not have the latest snowfall ever this year. The latest first snowfall in Denver occurred on November 21, 1934 and the average date of first snowfall is October 19th so it was a little later than expected. With the forecast for the next few days, if we did not get the snow today it would have been possible to break the record.
As it was warm yesterday the snow is not really sticking to the streets, but on other surfaces it is a different story. I headed down the street towards the Governors Residence and took the following image, of the snow on the fence as well as some of the remaining leaves.
Stop by tomorrow for Day 15 of Thirty Days 2008, and of course the snow will be long gone by then as the temperature warms back up for the weekend.
