Snow began to fall Friday just west of Denver at elevations above 7,000 feet. Snow also has been reported in parts of Montana, according to CNN meteorologist Gene Norman.
Norman said, even for the area, snowfall at this point is rare. The last time the city saw snow this late was on June 17, 1928.
But no one seems to be complaining on Twitter.
“Snow in Breckenridge, Colorado!” Jennifer Thompson tweeted.
“Only in Colorado does it snow the first day of summer,” one man wrote.
“Good morning it’s June 22nd and we just got snow in Colorado,” wrote another.
Singer Kelly Clarkson was enjoying it, she tweeted.
“Yes, that is snow in my hand. Snowball fights in June. I love Colorado!”
Steamboat Springs averages 0.1 inches of snow in June, with May 6 being the average last day of snowfall during a typical season, Norman said. This strange snowfall is in part because the atmosphere is warmer and moister than before. At ground level, it’s too warm to support snowfall, but more mountainous areas don’t have that problem.
We’ll take a snowball fight, for sure.
