Denver International Airport received 27.1 inches of snow in this weekend’s storm, making it the fourth-largest snowstorm in Denver’s history.

Three more inches of snow fell after sunset on Sunday to put the airport – where the official weather records are now recorded – over the 27-inch mark after it received a little over 24 inches by 6:30 p.m.

The storm put Denver at a little over 60 inches of snow so far for the season, putting it above the average of 56.5 inches per season and making it the snowiest winter since 2015-16, when 72.8 inches of snow were recorded.

Official weather records started being kept at Denver International Airport in 1995 and were kept at the Stapleton Airport before then.

While Denver wasn’t in the top 10 of locations in Colorado that saw the most snow in this weekend’s storm (The Buckhorn Mountain area saw 42 inches!) it was good enough for fourth place in the official record books.
