Denver temperature drops from 83 to 13 degrees in just 18 hours; 70-degree plunge ties for second-biggest in city's history

One day it’s a sunny 83 degree fall day. The next it’s a snowy, winter wonderland clocking in at 13 degrees. That’s what happened in Denver this week, with the 70-degree difference in temperatures was one of the largest drops in history. To add to injury, it also was the first snowfall of the season, with leaving the city “coated in 1-3 inches of snowfall.” Now, while it’s not the first time this has happened (in 2008 the temperature swung 76 degrees) we are going to see more of these swings. Climate unpredictability is here to stay, make sure you pack accordingly!
