Especially if your hat is made of cheese.

On June 1 you can put away:
*Ski jacket/parka
*Snow boots
*Snow hat
*Gloves
Any wool garments
Probably flannel shirts, unless you're planning some mountain camping
*Keep accessible if you're going to go 4th of July skiing somewhere. It happens, some years.
Get them out again September 1

On November 1 you can put away:
Tank Tops (except those you wear to the gym)
Lightweight shorts (ditto)
Sundresses if you wear them
Capri pants " " " "
Get them out again May 1

I've seen it snow in September (but not lately) and snow in June. I've seen January days in the 70s.
I know people like to accuse us of making stuff up about the weather, but all of this is accurate. Not that it's 70 every day all year round, but yeah, it can hit 70 in the winter. And can snow in June - not usually but there's a fairly good chance of some snow in May.

Halloween is a total crapshoot on whether it's going to be in the 30s with snow or in the upper 80s with kids melting underneath their costumes, or anywhere in between

Took me about 8 months, but I love Denver. So many things to do here. If I were to change anything? More rain and diversity. But, I gotta say I'm impressed.

It took me a few years to get used to the weather here. So different from IL or PA. But so fun!

I just had a great weekend showing my friend around and the weather was anywhere from the 60s-90s. I just thought to myself, "is there any other place on Earth that I can do this many things in this sort of weather?"

I know everyone just said weather was all over the place - what is the weather typically like in Estes Park near end of August? and in Denver near end of August?

End of August in Denver is typically in the lower 80s with overnight lows in the upper 40s/low 50s.
Estes Park is mid-70s and lower 40s.

True, bluescreen. But. . . it can be in the 90s in Denver with lows in the 60s, or 60s during the day and 40s at night, or anything in between. Likewise, it can cold and rainy in Estes at the end of August, and snowing in Rocky Mountain NP. Try as I may, I can't find any information about snow at the end of August. It snowed there on Sept. 30 of last year, the day my daughter had an outdoor wedding. (No snow at the wedding, but later than evening.)

Weather is very predictable...it won't stay the same for long and it can be just about anything except sultry and humid. The weather forecasts aren't that bad, usually a day in advance they get it right. So as long as you commit to watching a weather app or the news nightly its fine and the climate here was one of the things I was most attracted to and it hasn't disappointed.
