If it’s felt like it hasn’t stopped snowing in Denver so far this month, you’re not wrong.
Denver has seen snow 12 of 19 days so far this February through Wednesday, totaling 16.5 inches of official monthly snowfall. That already makes it tied for Denver’s 11th-snowiest February on record, with still more than a week to go in the month.

With the 16.5-inch monthly total, Denver is also less than six inches away from tying its snowiest February on record, a 22.4-inch total from 2015.
Another 0.6 inches of snow fell on Wednesday, boosting Denver’s seasonal snowfall total up to 46.4 inches. That’s over a foot above the season-to-date average.
Wednesday was also Denver’s 12th day with at least a trace of snowfall so far this February at Denver International Airport, continuing an exceptionally consistent string of snowy weather in the Denver area. A trace of snowfall means that snowflakes were seen, but they didn’t officially accumulate. Denver has had three days so far this February with a trace of snow.
But on Wednesday, Denver also saw measurable snowfall – defined by at least 0.1 inches of snowfall or more – for the ninth time so far this month. Again, this points to the consistency of the snow so far this month in Denver.
Normally, Denver averages 7.7 inches of snow in February and six days of measurable snow, meaning Denver is already considerably above average on both fronts.
Denver’s snowy February comes off an exceptionally snow-free December and January, which featured only 3.7 inches of combined snowfall over those two months.
With well over a week still left in the month, there’s probably still more snow in the offing for the Denver area. The next chance for snow likely arrives on Sunday, when an area of low pressure will track through southern Colorado. If this storm tracks close enough to the Denver area, it could mean a few more inches of snow on Sunday into Monday.
