DENVER (CBS4) – The storm system that most of us have been hoping for is oozing into Colorado Saturday night! Heavy snow and record cold are expected to come with it.
The cold front will bring the coldest air so far this season with highs only in the teens for both Sunday and Monday in Denver.
Overnight lows will be in the single digits and below zero over northern Colorado on Sunday and Monday nights! We are expecting a rough commute on Monday morning.
A Winter Storm Warning is in place Sunday morning Thru Monday morning for Denver and the entire Front Range! Snow totals will vary a lot simply because of our terrain and the potential banded nature of this storm. The highest amounts will be in the Front Range Mountains and Foothills where totals could reach 1 to 2 feet in spots. Anywhere from 5-10 inches will be possible around metro Denver with the highest totals on the south and west sides of town where there is more elevation.
This storm will drop snow in the southern mountains too which is great news. Some locations in the San Juan Mountains could also see snow totals in excess of a foot.
Warmer weather will return starting Tuesday but it will take a few days to get back to normal levels for this time of year. Right now Halloween is looking dry and quiet with seasonal temperatures.
