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

13-17 in 2001... a huge dust storm over southern and inner mongolia
        during April 3rd through the 6th lifted desert dust into
        the jet stream. This dust cloud moved over Metro Denver
        on the 13th and persisted through the 17th. The cloud
        created widespread haze... giving the sky a milkish cast
        due to the scattering of incoming solar radiation.
15-16 in 1900... heavy rainfall totaled 2.33 inches. A trace of
        snow was mixed with the rain at times.
      In 1950... thunderstorms and heavy rain behind a cold front
        produced 2.13 inches of rain in 24 hours at Stapleton
        Airport.
      In 2003... a fast moving Pacific storm system moved across
        Colorado allowing strong winds to develop over the eastern
        foothills and Metro Denver. Northwest winds gusted to 59
        mph at Denver International Airport late in the evening of
        the 15th.
15-17 in 1922... heavy snowfall totaled 9.0 inches in downtown
        Denver. Most of the snow... 6.0 inches... fell on the 16th.
        This was the third major snow storm in a week. Northwest
        winds were sustained to 43 mph with gusts to 47 mph on the
        15th.
16 in 1960... a wind storm struck all of Metro Denver. Estimated
        wind gusts up to 80 mph were registered in Boulder. At
        Stapleton Airport sustained west-northwest winds over
        50 mph with gusts as high as 70 mph produced some blowing
        dust. The high winds damaged buildings... power and telephone
        lines... and signs. Five people were injured in Metro Denver
        as a result of the wind storm. Blowing dust reduced
        visibility at times. The winds were strong and gusty for
        most of the day.
16-17 in 1944... heavy snowfall totaled 7.5 inches in downtown
        Denver. Northwest winds were sustained to 18 mph on
        the 16th.
16-18 in 2009... a potent Spring storm brought heavy snow to locations
        in and near the Front Range foothills. A deep easterly
        upslope produced nearly 5 feet of snow in parts of the
        foothills. The heavy snow resulted in the closure of
        Interstate 70... from Golden West to Vail... for approximately
        16 hours. The heavy snow snapped power lines in Evergreen
        and Nederland. The ensuing outages affected 14200
        residents.
        In the Front Range foothills... storm totals included: 56
        inches... 3 miles south of rollinsville; 54 inches... 3 miles
        southeast of Pinecliffe... 43 inches at Aspen Springs... 42
