Colorado covered by snow on the first day of summer !!

Summer solstice, you say? Nearly July? Judging from the almost 2 feet of snow in Colorado, Mother Nature doesn’t seem to care.

Snow began to fall Friday just west of Denver at elevations above 7,000 feet. Snow also has been reported in parts of Montana, according to CNN meteorologist Gene Norman.
Steamboat Springs saw 20 inches of snow on Friday, according to CNN affiliate KCNC in Denver. A winter weather advisory is in effect until Sunday morning, so the snowfall could continue.

Norman said, even for that area, snow at this point is rare. The last time the city saw snow this late was June 17, 1928.
But nobody seems to complain on Twitter.
“Ok, you nearly stationary storm. If you could stay put while we navigate around you – that would be great” Jennifer Thompson tweeted.

“Only in Colorado does it snow the first day of summer,” one man wrote.

This strange snow is partly because the atmosphere is warmer and more humid than before. On the ground, it is too warm to support snow, but more mountainous areas don’t have that problem.

Meanwhile, in Florida, the National Weather Service issued a heat advisory for Saturday. Temperatures are approaching the upper 90s, and the heat index is up to 108 degrees.
