Actually, Cañon City set three new weather records in October, including two for record cold.
Last month’s 19.7 inches of snowfall eclipsed the previous record of 17.5 inches in October 1969, says Ed Norden, Cañon City’s Cooperative Weather Observer for the National Weather Service.
Cañon City also established two new record lows in October.
The 9F (-12.8C) low on Oct. 30 shattered the previous record low of 12F (-11.1C) in 1993. And the -3F (-19.4C) on Oct. 31 broke the old record for coldest Halloween of 12F set in 1991.
