DENVER — A colder and wetter weather pattern begins today as a strong cold front passes through Colorado.

Six to ten inches of snow will be likely for the mountains of northern and central Colorado above 10,000 feet.

Sunday will be much cooler with a chance for some rain showers in the Denver area. The weather for the Broncos game will be much cooler with temperatures in the upper 50s at kickoff, dropping to the low 50s in the 4th quarter. There will be strong winds and a chance for showers during the game.


The storm will not be a big one for the Denver area, but there will be a chance of some light snow Sunday night and early Monday - probably not enough to mark the first official snowfall of the season - as only a trace is likely.

The average date for the first official snow (at least one tenth of an inch) is October 18. Last year, the first official snowfall was not until Dec. 10 - the latest on record since 1882. In 2020, the first snowfall was on Sept. 8. The earliest snowfall was Sept. 3, 1961.

Monday will be chilly with highs only in the upper 40s to low 50s. Tuesday will stay cool with highs in the middle 50s. Wednesday will be a little milder as temperatures return to near 60 degrees.

Thursday will be cooler with a chance for some showers.
