When will we get our first winter storm of the season? I don't know, but the Old Farmer's Almanac claims they do. Their famous predictions are made 18 months in advance and are traditionally at least 80% accurate. I think most Denver TV weathermen are not that accurate.

According to almanac.com, Fort Collins will get it's first snow in October of 2016.
