Weather

The biggest surprise for visitors to Denver is the climate. The arid conditions bring only 8 to 15 inches of annual precipitation and locals wake up to more than 300 days of sunshine a year. That’s more annual hours of sun than Miami and San Diego.
 
Denver experiences true four seasons throughout the year. Winters are mild with an average daily high temperature of 45 degrees Fahrenheit, although days reaching up to 60 degrees are not uncommon.
 
While there is periodic snow, it doesn’t stay on the ground long due to the sunshine.
Summertime in Denver is characterized by low relative humidity, so expect sunny, warm days and cool, comfortable evenings. The average daily high temperature in August is a mild 86 degrees Fahrenheit. Denver’s mild weather is due in part to the city’s altitude: 5,280 feet above sea level, or exactly a mile high—hence the nickname, “The Mile High City.”
