And now, back to sunny and 70s! So was March a record for dryness? I wish it would just rain all day once a week to green things up, even a cold rain.

Booooooo!

According to Dave Aguilera of CBS4, March 2011 was the second driest March on record in Denver.

The rain'll probably come in May. I believe it's the rainiest month.

We're flying to Denver for a week to do interviews and checkout apartments for our summer move, so it better not rain!.

Thanks again for this thread. So far I'm encourged by what I'm reading about the weather in Denver and yet I realize not every year is the same. It's good to know there are sun breaks in between the storms.

This Denver cam web link has been help to me as well:

Hehe, it very well might. It could even snow. The Rockies got snowed out just the other day.

We came out here for our scouting trip in December 2006. I was overjoyed about seeing a deep, constant snow cover during our trip here. I was dismayed that it didn't actually snow, but it was cold enough to not melt the snow, and warm enough to not be uncomfortable.

This happened about a week after we left to go home to CA:
Colorado Holiday Blizzards (2006

We moved here on June 1, 2007. Our first week here, my wife, a native Mojave Desert-rat, was ready to move back to CA after experiencing a typical CO torrential afternoon downpour.

So, uh, just keep an open mind. Hope you like all kinds of weather!

Well, both of us grew up in south Florida, went to school in northern Florida and have lived in North Carolina for the past 3 years. We're ready for a change, it's too damn hot for us! Plus, we're both snowboarders and love the outdoors so living close to the mountains is a big plus for us.

Well, then any rain CO can throw at you will be nothing compared to what you are used to. The heat is cake too, no humidity!

Yup! I visited family in Denver when I was 10, and all I can remember was how beautiful it was in September when it was 95 degrees in Florida when we came home.

Is it just me, or are the trees opening too soon? I'm worried that we'll get a night in the teens, and kill everything. I checked the 10 day forcast and no temps below freezing predicted. The weather in the Post today doesn't show any below freezing nights either. Granted, it can snow in Denver and be above 32 degrees (it was 40 ans snowing at our house the other day) so with the rain predicted, we'll most likely have snow mixed in at some point. I suppose Denver could get an "early Spring" every now and then, just like last Fall we didn't get a hard freeze until November.
