DENVER (CBS4) – The month of February brought a little bit of everything to Denver’s official weather station except for thunder, although thunder was heard during the afternoon of February 16th in some areas as a strong cold front moved into the state.

Denver’s warmest high last month was 65 degrees on February 3rd at 1:04 pm. Just a few days later the temperature fell to 11 degrees below zero at 7:52 am on February 7th. (that’s a 76 degree temperature swing in just over 90 hours)
