DENVER (CBS4) –
A major cool down in Colorado on Monday after a cold front swept through earlier in the day. We fell about 30 degrees from Sunday! We were also extremely gusty, with many areas experiencing winds over 40 mph.
Our mountains did pick up some much needed snow. Most areas picked up around 2 to 5 inches, with Winter Park coming out the winner with 7 inches.
Winds calm down Monday night, and skies stay clear. This means we are in for some very cold temperatures on Tuesday morning. We’ll be in the teens overnight into Tuesday, with single digits possible in the high country.
Looking further ahead, the only chance for precipitation in the metro area this week will be Thursday when a slight chance (20%) for snow develops. It seems unlikely at this time that any of us would see anything significant. After Thursday, we start to warm back up to the 50s and 60s.
