DENVER (CBS4) – An unusually cold late August storm system is bringing a chilly rain and some high altitude snow to parts of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho.

The National Weather Service says as much as 4-8 inches could fall in elevations above 9,000 feet in the mountains of Montana and Wyoming.

Some areas have been placed under a Winter Weather Advisory.

Colorado is on the extreme southern edge of this weather system and will be windy as it passes by.

Some colder air will filter into northern and northeast Colorado by Tuesday with highs dropping 20-30 degrees from Monday.

Meteorologist Chris Spears travels weekly in the CBS4 Mobile Weather Lab reporting about Colorado’s weather and climate. Check out his bio, connect with him on Facebook or follow him on Twitter @ChrisCBS4.

    This can’t be true,the ice caps are melting.

    1. Joe Johnson says:

      Not really….Polar Ice is actually INCREASING and summer snow melt DECREASING

  2. Don McCoy says:

    Let’s see how the Left spin this into WARMING! LOL! When it backs their claims it’s “climate.” When it doesn’t, it’s only “weather.”

  3. Karen DeLong says:

    Quick! It’s global warming…..err—climate change!! How about just a regular old fashioned snow/rain/hail storm???

  4. Joe Pace says:

    On the good side…fire danger is low.

  5. James C. Morris says:

    – As the media continues to say we are in the hottest year ever!

  6. Rob Ready says:

    Stay out of Carbon County Wyoming, i.e. Rawlins, Saratoga–not because of the snow– but because of their fascist police state tactics and malicious court system. This cowboy state is now ARRESTING people for CBD hemp oil!

    1. Charles Ross says:

      You weren’t suppose to leave Colorado Rob. Or better yet go to NM where they love drugs and followers of the warlord muhammad.

      1. mjazzguitar says:

        Then they bulldoze the evidence.

  7. Huck Klmdia says:

    Al Gore told me that this, and anything I might hear about a disgruntled masseuse were fake news

  8. Anti-racists say there is a RACE problem that can only be solved when the third world pours into EVERY White country and “assimilates.”

    What if I said there was a RACE problem that could only be solved if hundreds of millions of non-Blacks were brought into EVERY Black country? How long before people realize I’m not talking about a RACE problem, but the conclusion to the BLACK problem?

    They say they are anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

  9. Brian Sparks says:

    This is just a stupid article. Snow at 9,000 ft is not a big deal. There are only about 20 cities in the US that are 9.000 ft or higher and all are little towns in Colorado.
    Neither proves or disproves global warming.
    Stupid article, oops I think I already said that…

    1. Paul Tsamtsis says:

      So Brian, what will you say to anyone who says this proves ‘climate change’ which politicians and other sloppy thinkers conflate with ‘global warming.’

  10. Why is anything & everything in the news subject to vicious attacks ?
    We’ve become a very short tempered, hateful society. It seems we
    need a major event or disaster to get us ALL on the same side again,
    instead of bickering with each other !

  11. writeinbaxterschnauzer2016 says:

    Any Colorado native will tell you it can snow about 10,000 feet any day of the year.

    No surprise here.

  12. “Anti-racists” say there’s a RACE problem. They say it’ll be solved when non-Whites pour into ALL & ONLY White nations and “assimilate” to get a brown mixture.

    They say only White nations have this RACE problem; they say non-White nations are fine.

    If I object to my own genocide these “anti-racists” say I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    They say they’re anti-racist. What they are is anti-White.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    Trump’s fault!
