Thank you for your Original Content, /u/bradyrx!
Here is some important information about this post:
Thanks, in Boulder, and I was literally just wondering about our average first snow this morning... Glad to see we are shooting right down the middle this year. I remember 2016 seeming late, but I didn't realize it was record-setting late!
What is shown: The date of the first measurable snowfall in Boulder, CO. We received our first snow for 2018 today.
Software: This was visualized using matplotlib in python.
The code can be found here: https://github.com/bradyrx/monthly_twitter_plots/blob/master/scripts/boulder_first_snow.py
The data (although unofficial) can be found here: https://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/boulder/firstsnow.html
About all this New Englander knows about Boulder (besides the university and “Mork and Mindy”) is that it is usually rated one of the healthiest and happiest places in the country. Doesn’t such early (and presumably late and possibly eventually deep) snow work against those things? I guess New England is somewhat similar that way though snow in October is somewhat rare.
