The Christmas Day snowstorm set a record for Fort Collins.

Five inches of snow fell at the CSU Weather Station on Thursday, the most ever on Christmas Day. Then, three more inches of snow fell Friday, setting another record.

The weather station reported about 7 inches of snow on the ground Friday night.

The last time Fort Collins saw a white Christmas was in 2012, said Kyle Fredin, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Boulder. That year, 3.1 inches of snow fell. This year’s snowfall broke a record from 1894, when 3.8 inches fell. In 121 years of record keeping, it has snowed on Christmas Day 14 times.

Friday’s snowfall beat out the 1954 record of 2.8 inches.

Totals across the Fort Collins and Greeley areas ranged from 5 to 7 inches, Fredin said Friday morning. The highest total snowfall reported to the weather service was just under 15 inches in Eldorado Springs.
