2020 is Denver’s coldest Easter since at least 1937

You might want to send the Easter Bunny some tropical thoughts.

Denver’s average daily temperature of just 27 degrees, as of Sunday afternoon, made it the city’s coldest Easter since at least 1937. It was also Denver’s seventh-coldest Easter on record.

That 27-degree average daily temperature statistic is based on an average of the city’s high (34 degrees) and low (20 degrees).

With light snow continuing throughout the day on Sunday, however, that average temperature could tumble even lower, perhaps making it Denver’s coldest Easter in nearly 100 years.

All of those statistics are based on the city’s official observations at Denver International Airport.

More so: Denver’s “high” temperature of 34 degrees took place at 12:01 a.m. Sunday morning, meaning what most people actually felt on Sunday was far colder than what even the chilly statistics say.

On top of the cold air temperatures, wind chills were mostly stuck in the single digits on Sunday as well.

One bit of good news for winter-haters, though: the majority of Sunday’s snowfall stayed just north and west of Denver. The city had only officially recorded 0.1 inches of snowfall, and most immediate Denver-area totals were in the half-inch to 1 inch range, as of Sunday afternoon. More light snow is expected through Sunday night, which could lead to another inch or 2 of snowfall in the Denver area.

That said, the cold, and perhaps snow, isn’t going away any time soon. Another round of light snow is likely on Monday night, with 1 to 3 inches possible in the Denver area. More light snow could also be in the offing for Wednesday night into Thursday.

Temperatures likely won’t return to Denver’s seasonal average of around 60 degrees until early next week.
