Happy May Day 2013!

After three days of temps in the 60’s & 70’s, May roared in with SNOW – 7” inches expected before all ends later today 🙂

Rainfall turned to snow flurries around midnight in Boulder, and the official snowfall for the city was 3 inches as of 7 a.m., according to meteorologist Matt Kelsch.

 

The record for May 1 is 6.2 inches set in 1973, and in 1978 Boulder saw 23 inches fall over a two-day span in early May.

UPDATE:

Boulder saw a total of 12.1 inches of snow for the May 1 snowstorm according to local meteorologist Matt Kelsch. The total nearly doubled the previous May 1 record of 6.2 inches and has Boulder way ahead of the average snowfall for the month of May, which is only an inch.

 

Kelsch also said this morning’s low of 17 was the coldest temperature ever recorded in May, breaking the previous record of 20 set on May 3, 1907.

May Day 2013 SNOW!
