5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is incredible coming from the east coast. It stays warm (60s) for most of the winter but it snows up in the mountains so we get the best of both worlds. Gets colder when the sun goes down but its only cold at night in the winter.

The key word to describe Denver’s weather is variety. Some people incorrectly assume that Denver is caught in a perpetual blizzard. More accurately, all four seasons are represented, though they do seem to mesh into one another from time to time. Winters can be cold, but for the most part they are mild. Driving in the snow can be tricky, though, as roads sometimes become dangerously icy. Spring is pleasant and tends to reach high temperatures by late April, but there is the occasional March or April blizzard. Summers tend to be hot, offering little relief from rain, and autumn is beautiful and doesn’t tend to get too cold until early November. The best part of Denver is that it is sunny almost every day, no matter the temperature.

The weather gear shifts frequently, so while you may be battling slippery roads one day, bright sunshine will melt the ice away the next. Anything can happen with the weather in Denver; the trick is wearing lots of layers of clothing so you’re better prepared. Some people are surprised at how dry Denver’s air is. The low humidity can be good and bad, as it doesn’t get too muggy, but it can get uncomfortably hot. Generally speaking, temperatures don’t stay within the extremities for long periods of time.
