After a dry and mild weekend and a beautiful, warm Monday - a big change is coming to Colorado!
A strong cold front will slice through the state early Tuesday, bringing snow and the coldest air of the season to Denver and the eastern half of Colorado.
This storm is set to drop 3 to 6 inches of snow across the Front Range Tuesday and Wednesday, with up to 6-12 inches in the mountains along and east of the Continental Divide. The heaviest snow will be over southern Colorado on Wednesday from Wolf Creek Pass to Colorado Springs to Trinidad.
Highs early Tuesday will be in the low 30s with falling temperatures through the afternoon. By Wednesday morning, lows will be in the single digits and then highs only in the teens.
Skies will clear Wednesday night and bitter cold is expected early Thursday. Lows will drop to 5 to 10 below zero in Denver and across the I-25 Corridor by dawn on Thursday. Skies will be sunny, but highs stay cold in the teens in the afternoon.
The cold air mass will ease it's grip on our region by Friday with dry and milder weather over the weekend!
