The 10 Wildest Weather Headlines in Northern Colorado in 2016
In 2016, we've certainly had some crazy weather touch down in Northern Colorado. Hail, snowstorms, lightning, wind, and more-- but do you remember them all?
Because 2016 is quickly winding down, we gathered the craziest weather headlines we reported throughout the year and put them in one handy list for you so we can all remember the craziness together, starting in January!
On January 14, our contributor Mollie reported that strong wind gusts shattered a local Starbucks' door. Yikes!
While many in our office stayed home during the crazy February snowstorm, three contributors decided to make a fun video about the odd shape of the weather patterns instead.
In Greeley, what was being called a 'gustnado' sprung up in April and was caught on camera-- you can see the crazy image here.
Before heading off for their prom, this Wrap couple decided to get their prom snapshot in FRONT of a raging tornado miles away. Check out the crazy image here.
On May 24, a wild hailstorm hit Northern Colorado and pummeled our contributor, Matt Sparx's, open-roofed Jeep. Yikes! Check out the photos here.
It wouldn't be the first time we'd been threatened with a flood, but this was no joke. Matt Sparx wrote about our flash flood warning in July, after we'd already been pummeled by the nonstop rain for the month!

The windstorm of October 2016 was the subject on everyone's lips after it (literally) blew through Northern Colorado. Check out the video that Matt Sparx took below!
That's right-- rather than continuing the wet weather from the summer or getting a jump-start on the snow, Northern Colorado went into a drought in November and also had record-high temperatures.
Talk about the living epitome of every Colorado meme that's ever been made. Yes, this November, we had a flip-flopping temperature week and, spoiler alert-- it STILL didn't snow.
Finally, we're getting some snow-- though, after the dumping we got on Friday night, I think many people are wishing again for that 70-degree November weather.
