The weather in Boulder is a major plus, with claims of over 300 days of sunshine a year. After some research of this claim that dates back to the 1870s, we found that we only actually average 250 days of sunshine a year. I know, how disappointing, however, living in Boulder, it seems like the sun shines almost all the time.
The weather changes in Boulder frequently, with large temperature swings and a wide range of weather patterns. This fall is no exception — yesterday it was almost 70 degrees and today we have snow and 28.
A reliable resource is the NOAA Physical Sciences Laboratory website, which provides daily climatology and records to offer you insight into historic temperature data in Boulder.
I have a great weather app on my phone that is worth checking out — MY Radar provides weather information based on your GPS location.
It is important to check the weather when planning your daily activities or during a visit to Boulder. Make sure you plan to have the correct gear you need when the weather changes.
