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

25-26 in 1908... apparent Post-frontal rain changed to snow overnight
        and totaled 6.5 inches in downtown Denver. This was the
        first snow of the season. Precipitation totaled 0.76 inch.
        North winds were sustained to 39 mph on the 25th.
25-27 in 1996... an early season snowstorm brought heavy snow
        to the Front Range eastern foothills. Snowfall totals
        included: 8 to 12 inches around Conifer... 7 inches on
        Floyd hill... and 6 inches at both Bailey and chief hosa.
        Snowfall totaled only 4.7 inches at the site of the
        former Stapleton International Airport. This was the
        first measurable snow of the season. After the passage
        of a strong cold front... north winds gusted to 38 mph at
        Denver International Airport on the 25th.
26 in 1907... a late afternoon thunderstorm produced hail... 0.23
        inch of precipitation... and north winds sustained to 24 mph.
      In 1927... snowfall of 1.7 inches... mixed at times with sleet...
        was the first measurable snowfall of the season.
      In 2012... a man was seriously injured when he was struck by
        lightning outside the hebrew educational Alliance as he
        and his family were getting in their car. The victim
        stopped breathing but was saved when his wife performed
        cardiopulmonary resuscitation on him immediately
        following the lightning strike. He suffered Burns to 15
        percent of his body which included his legs... chest...
        abdomen and neck. Lightning also caused 48 outages in
        Denver which affected 6582 xcel energy customers.
26-28 in 1936... the heaviest snowfall ever recorded in September
        and the heaviest snowfall ever recorded so early in the
        season dumped a total of 16.5 inches of snow on downtown
        Denver and 21.3 inches at Denver Municipal Airport. The
        15.0 inches of snow measured from 6:00 PM on the 27th to
        6:00 PM on the 28th is the greatest 24 hour snowfall ever
        recorded in September. This was the first snow of the
        season. The snow was intermittent through the 26th... but
        continuous from early afternoon on the 27th to around
        midnight on the 28th... except for a period of rain during
        the afternoon of the 28th which contributed to a loss of
        depth on the ground. The greatest snow depth on the ground
        downtown was 13 inches with 8 inches at Denver Municipal
        Airport. There were no high winds with the storm and
        traffic was interrupted for only a short period. The
        storm produced property damage estimated at 7 million
        dollars. With trees and shrubs in full foliage... the leaves
        caught and held the heavy water-laden snow... until the
        branches snapped from the weight. More than 3000 workmen
        were called to remove the debris and snow from the city. The
        city firemen who were off duty... as well as all the reserves...
        were asked to report to their stations. All schools in the
        city remained open... but attendance was only 50 percent of
        normal. Grade school students were sent home at noon on the
        28th. The early storm caught stockmen with many cattle still
        in higher ranges. Warm weather followed the snow... which had
        all melted by the end of the month... except for a few inches
        in sheltered places.
