Ian Battering the Florida Peninsula with Catastrophic Storm Surge, Winds, and Flooding

Ian made landfall on mainland Florida as a category 4 major hurricane near 4:30 PM ET south of Punta Gorda near Pirate Harbor. Catastrophic storm surge inundation along with destructive waves is ongoing along the southwest Florida coastline. Hurricane-force winds are expected to spread inland to central Florida near the core of Ian through early Thursday. Heavy rainfall will continue flooding. Read More >

 

 

 

 

History of Snowfall Observations at Denver, Colorado

Since snowfall records began in 1882, there have been three main locations for Official Snowfall Observations.  They were located across downtown Denver (1882 to 1949), Stapleton Airport (1950 to August 2007) which is now called Central Park and Denver International Airport (September 2007 to Present).

Keep in mind, when the National Weather Service took observations from 1950 through the Spring of 1999, four snowfall observations were taken each day.  Currently, only one observation is taken per day at Central Park which remains a Cooperative Observer (COOP) site.   As a result, the NCEI 30 Year Average (1991-2020) has dropped to 49" but is likely underestimated, due to only "1" observation taken per day.   In reality, the Seasonal Average is probably closer to 56" as shown in the map below.

In the Fall of 2007, the Official Snowfall Observations were moved to Denver International Airport (DIA).  Four observations are taken per day at this location.

As you can see, the current official observation, at DIA, has moved several miles to the east and northeast of the previous two locations.   In general, as you go the further east and northeast of the higher terrain, Seasonal Snowfall drops off dramatically.  For example, the western suburbs of Denver average around 65" per season while areas around DIA are around 47".
