KUSA - What were you doing 52 years ago on this date? Were you stranded in the earliest first snowfall ever seen in Denver?
The Labor Day snowstorm on Sept. 3, 1961 is on for the record books and one that many Coloradans surely remember. More than 4 inches of snow officially fell at the Stapleton Airport, while more than a foot of snow stacked up in the western suburbs and foothills.
The heavy, wet snow snapped off tree limbs, with leaves still hanging onto their fall colors.
This Tuesday's forecast is a far cry from this winter wonderland that happened more than a half century ago. The Denver metro area could see possible record-breaking heat. Highs will near, if not, clip the 95-degree record set back in 1995.
