The weather is nice but what Denver needs is moisture

The Denver weather has been nice but we are extremely dry and in need of some moisture.

The Denver weather has been nice but we are extremely dry and in need of some moisture.

This week we have had some extraordinarily nice weather and it has been great.  The mountains are certainly having a great year for snow with all of the major basins exceeding 100% of average for snowpack.  However, here along the Front Range and the plains, we are bone dry and well below normal for snowfall. 

As of today, Denver has received only half of its normal amount of snow for this point in the snow season which runs from July through June.  By the first of February, we normally should have received 33.3 inches.  To date for the 2008 – 2009 season we have received a mere 16.9 inches of snow as measured at Denver International Airport.  Closer to the central part of the city, Stapleton has been even drier with only 13.1 inches of the white stuff to date. 

For a complete look at how bleak the moisture has been along the Front Range, check out the details in our Examiner.com story.
