DENVER (CBS4) – Hello October!
Our new month is wasting no time in producing a big weather change over Colorado. A huge low pressure trough is overtaking the western half of the nation and is blowing in a cold front through the area Sunday night into Monday morning.
This front will be a big snow maker for the northern mountains of the state. With a variety of Winter Storm Warnings, Advisories and Watches in place for Sunday afternoon thru Monday.
Ahead of the front thunderstorms fired up over the eastern plains. Some of Sunday’s storms just east of DIA out into Nebraska and Kansas have reached severe levels with strong winds and hail. There was a Tornado Warning issued briefly for northeastern Yuma county. No reports of one touching down though.
There is a marginal chance for severe thunderstorms over the northeast corner of Colorado for Monday afternoon.
Behind the cold front temperatures will be cooling down dramatically across the region with highs in the 50s and 60s returning the Denver metro area in the week ahead. Along with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms.
