To go from summer to winter, you usually have to go through fall first, or you could live in Denver, Colorado.

The Mile High City recorded one of the largest temperature swings in its weather history Wednesday, Oct. 9, with 83-degree temperatures just before 2 p.m. Wednesday plunging to a wintry 13 degrees just before midnight Thursday — a 70-degree swing, according to KDVR.

It ties for the greatest temperature drop over two days in October on record in Denver.

The frigid weather was accompanied by the area’s first snowfall of the season, which left Denver coated in 1 to 3 inches of snow. It caused numerous car crashes Thursday as well as flight delays at Denver International Airport.

In 2008, the temperatures dropped 76 degrees between Dec. 14 and 15, CBS Denver reports.
