DENVER (CBS4) – The deep, slow-moving, low pressure trough creating our cool Fall weekend is still covering the entire western half of the nation.
This will keep our cool and wet weather pattern locked in over all of eastern Colorado. As the center of this trough begins to move into northern Colorado and Wyoming rain and mountain snow is picking up and will keep falling through Monday morning. The snow level may drop down to around 8,000 ft to 7,500 ft. This means some of our high foothills west of Denver may see a little light snow by Sunday morning.
Western Colorado is seeing a bit of clearing and temperatures will be dropping big time overnight Sunday into Monday morning. There is a Freeze Warning from 11 pm Sunday through 9am Monday morning.
Saturday was a big moisture maker across the state. In fact, Denver had a record rainfall amount of .83 inches of rain. The old record was .64 set in 2013. At CBS4 we measured .51 inches of rain Saturday.
Monday will be another cool day for the Mile High City with another chance for morning clouds and rain. With showers continuing into the afternoon.
Tuesday through Thursday will get back to the 60s with isolated afternoon storms possible.
