DENVER — It may be May, but Mother Nature hasn’t gotten the email.

Sub-freezing temperatures and more wind are expected along the Palmer Divide overnight Tuesday.

A freeze warning will be in effect starting at midnight for central Elbert and east Douglas counties.

Temperatures as low as 27 degrees are expected. The warning expires at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

The National Weather Service warns that frost and freeze conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.

Cool and windy again on Tuesday across the Denver metro area

Strong winds will also make a return across the foothills and plains overnight.

It won't be quite as windy on Wednesday, and we'll see a bit more sunshine across the state.

Another storm moves into Colorado on Thursday, bringing a better chance of showers to the Denver metro area and cooler temperatures in the 50s.

And while there is no snow in the forecast for the Denver area, the city is no stranger to May snowfall events.

We typically see 1.7 inches of snow on average during the month.

Here are the 10 snowiest Mays, according to the National Weather Service:

  1. 15.5" 1898
  2. 13.7" 1950
  3. 13.5" 1978
  4. 13.2" 1912
  5. 12.0" 1917
