DENVER — Snow this late in May?

It is rare, but can happen!

A strong storm system will dump heavy rain and snow across Colorado through early Wednesday.

The average date for the last measurable snow in Denver is April 27th and the latest date on record was June 2 in 1951, although flurries fell on June 12 in 1947!

Here is the list of the last measurable snows in Denver in the past 10 years.

April 24, 2018 April 29, 2017 April 30, 2016 May 10, 2015 May 12, 2014 May 2, 2013 April 3, 2012 May 11, 2011 May 12, 2010 April 27, 2009 Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for the mountains above 9,000 feet.

Snow will fall heavily at times and may accumulate to 12 to 18 inches in the mountains by late Tuesday.

Roads vary from wet, to snow covered and slippery and numerous accidents have already been reported.

For elevations between 6,000 and 9,000 feet, Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for tonight and Tuesday for 4 to 8 inches of wet, sloppy snow.

This Advisory includes western and southern suburbs of the Denver area.

Most of the snow will accumulate on grassy areas, but trees and shrubs that are already in leaf will take a beating overnight.

Bring any potted plants indoors tonight and try to cover plants in the ground with a plastic bucket or something sturdy to keep the heavy snow and the cold at bay.

Temperatures will drop to the low 30s by early Tuesday.

Trees and shrubs may be saved by gently knocking off the snow tonight and early Tuesday.

Rain showers continue for elevations below 6,000 feet, but snow will mix in with the rain and change to wet, slushy snow overnight.

The snow may accumulate to a couple inches on grassy surfaces early Tuesday, but the roads will just stay wet.

The storm will be a very soggy one with 1-2 inches of liquid expected over much of the state!

Temperatures will stay cold on Tuesday with highs in the low to mid-40s for lower elevations and low to mid-30s in the mountains.

Cool, wet weather will linger into Wednesday with more mountain snow showers and rain showers for the plains.

Highs will be in the upper 30s to mid-40 in the mountains and in the 50s to near 60 on the plains.

Warmer and drier weather will finally arrive in Colorado Thursday and Friday with highs returning to around 70 degrees by Friday.

Saturday and Sunday will be warm and dry, followed by a chance for thunderstorms on Memorial Day.

Stay tuned for updates on the changing weather.
