Temperatures climbed well above average this afternoon along the Front Range. Downtown Denver managed 67 degrees shortly after 3pm, but colder temperatures are already pushing into northeast Colorado.
Those cold temperatures will be pushing into the metro area shortly and will hang around through the day Tuesday. Temperatures Tuesday are forecast to be in the lower 30s across the region, which is about 30+ degrees colder than today.
There will also be a chance for snow with this system. Chances Monday night will be very low, but a few areas of freezing drizzle could develop as the front passes through.
Denvers best chance for snow comes during the day Tuesday into Tuesday night as a secondary surge pushes through. Accumulation will generally be light, much like all of our recent systems. Totals will range from a dusting to 2 inches, with locally higher amounts possible. Timing could be a bit messy for Tuesday's rush, but overall impact should be low.
Warmer weather returns Wednesday as highs climb back into the 40s. Thursday could even be a few degrees warmer before yet another quick hitting front clips the state bringing another slight chance of snow and cooler temperatures.
