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

23 in 1873... north to northwest winds blowing almost a gale
        spread clouds of dust and sand into the city during the
        afternoon and evening. From the roof of the weather
        observer's building... houses a few hundred yards away were
        not visible and not even the sky could be seen through the
        clouds of sand. The wind reached sustained speeds of 35
        mph... but only 28 mph was registered for any one hour.
      In 1977... wind gusts from 50 to 80 mph were reported along the
        foothills. A northwest wind gust to 53 mph was recorded at
        Stapleton International Airport.
23-24 in 2000... the first snowstorm of the season brought heavy
        snow to areas in and near the foothills. While the
        heaviest snow fell north of Metro Denver... 6 inches were
        measured in Boulder... 4 inches at both Castle Rock and
        Morrison... but only 0.2 inch at the site of the former
        Stapleton International Airport where most of the
        precipitation fell as rain. At Denver International
        Airport where drizzle and rain fell on the 23rd...
        snowfall during the early morning of the 24th was
        estimated at 2.1 inches due to melting. The foothills
        west of Denver received more snow with 10 inches measured
        at Conifer... 9 inches 11 miles southwest of Morrison...
        8 inches atop Crow Hill... 7 inches at chief hosa... and
        5 inches at Ralston Reservoir.
