With snow hitting parts of Colorado last night, which was June 8th by the way, it got me to wondering what the latest our state has gotten snow in the past was.
I'm not talking about the mountains or ski resorts, which are known to get snow through June many years, but instead the front range, from Colorado Springs up through Denver and into Fort Collins.
After doing some research I found that Colorado Springs had snow on June 10th, 1975, they received 1.1 inches. Denver got a trace on June 12th, 1947, the latest they saw snow. In Northern Colorado I had a little more trouble finding stats for Fort Collins or Greeley, but I'd guess it would be in this early June range also.
