...Today in metro Denver weather history...

3-5   In 1984...the remnants of Pacific Hurricane Polo produced
        heavy rain over northeastern Colorado.  Most locations
        received between 1.00 to 2.50 inches of rain...but 3.45
        inches fell in Littleton.  Rainfall totaled 1.73 inches
        at Stapleton International Airport...where north winds
        gusted to 24 mph.
4-5   In 1997...unusually warm weather resulted in two temperature
        records.  High temperature of 87 degrees on the 4th exceeded
        the old record set in 1922 by one degree.  High temperature
        of 86 degrees on the 5th equaled the record set in 1990 and
        previous years.
5     In 1962...unusually severe thunderstorms for this late in the
        season affected areas from Boulder northward.  Hail up to
        golf ball size and strong gusty winds did much damage to
        roofs...windows...and signs in Boulder.  Heavy rainfall caused
        local flooding.
      In 1994...lightning caused a power outage to over 2400 homes
        for a few hours in and around Nederland in the foothills
        southwest of Boulder.  Very strong winds accompanied the
        thunderstorm.  Thunderstorm winds gusted to 60 mph and hail
        to 1/2 inch diameter fell in Lafayette.  Strong microburst
        winds gusting to 69 mph near Strasburg caused an oil rig
        to topple onto two vehicles...injuring one person.  The
        strong winds in the area also downed a few power poles...
        but caused power outages to only a few homes.
      In 1995...strong winds spread from the foothills onto the
        plains.  Wind gusts to 77 mph were reported atop Squaw
        Mountain west of Denver.  On the plains...winds gusted
        to 60 mph at Kennesburg and to 62 mph near Strasburg.
        North winds gusted to 41 mph at Denver International
        Airport.
