DENVER (CBS4) – A cold and snowy Sunday is on the way thanks to a powerful cold front crossing the region.
This will not be a big storm by Front Range standards during the month of October but due to the rapid temperature drop we’ll certainly see some widespread travel issues early Sunday.
In general 2-5″ is expected along the Interstate 25 and Interstate 76 corridors with some places in the adjacent foothills seeing anywhere from 4-9″ of accumulation.
As with all storms there will be a wide variety of totals due to terrain and potential banding within the snowfall.
Extreme southern Colorado may see a band of heavier snow set up just north of the state line.
Western Colorado will not feel this weather system in terms of much moisture but it will cool down a bit.
A quick recovery will get underway on Monday with sunshine and warmer temperatures. We’re back in the 60s by the middle of the new week.
