Denver recorded one of the driest Aprils in history
April ended with 0.06 inches of precipitation in Denver — a trace that makes it the third driest in history, according to the National Weather Service.
Why it matters: The lack of precipitation portends an arid summer that will increase drought conditions and fire danger.
Of note: Three of Denver's driest Aprils came in the last 20 years.
- None of the wettest Aprils came in the 2000s.
