August finished +2.5 at DEN and +1.4 for BOU. Boulder also had about 6x the precip as DEN, with 1.68" total. 

Overall, a warm summer but plenty of breaks in the heat. Definitely have seen worse...although would have liked to see more storms, only a few good ones this year.

Unseasonably warm weather most of this month continued over the weekend, with highs in the mid 80s. Today will probably touch 90 at DEN, which is about as late as temps that warm get here (latest 90 on record is 9/30).

Thankfully, temps cool to much more fall-like 60s in a couple days.

We had a few supercells in southern Arizona yesterday. Nothing at my place, but I could see the storms in the distance. Pretty incredible for this part of the country. Probably had 3" hail and a tornado at one point but it was in the middle of nowhere.

First potential snow and cold/stormy pattern to track for the Intermountain West and Rockies next week. The GEM looks the snowiest at this point here, with a very cold pattern for the whole West.

Yeah pretty major cold wave coming. Looking at highs in the low 70s down here and lows in the upper 40s. SLC should get snow, possibly pretty heavy.

Sounds a lot like California.

It doesn't get anymore active in California than this.

Denver broke a 90 year record for late first snow. La Nina to blame?

La Ninas definitely tend to have drier falls/early winters here. But the complete lack of storms really since late summer is an extreme anomaly.

DEN hit 73 today, just two degrees short of the warmest December temp on record.

Make it end...this fall and now going into early winter has been absolutely awful. One of the worst if not the worst in terms of dryness/warmth.

I would be in heaven if the 18z verified.

Countrywide drought.
