Colorado Got 5 Inches of June Snow Monday Night — Not Nearly as Much as Last Year
The first day of summer 2019, Colorado got nearly two feet of snow, we just all forgot.
Following a 90-degree weekend in Colorado, a Monday night snowstorm came as a bit of a surprise on June 8. Along the Front Range, we cooled off to temps in the 60s paired with plenty of rain, lighting and some wind and hail.
Higher elevations, like Rocky Mountain National Park, braced for several inches of snow and high winds, and according to OutThereColorado, the most snow measured in one area was 5 inches, in Ophir. The Continental Divide got 4.5 inches of snow.
Last summer on June 21, some parts of Colorado got up to 20 inches of snow, as CNN reported. So, more snow is possible, but unfortunately, A-Basin has already closed.
'Snow this late in the year is very rare, the last time it was seen in the area was June 17, 1928,' Waste-Ed posted on Instagram last summer.
