Cold spell to slowly ease up over weekend

12:00 Noon, Thursday, December 31, 2015

It’s not every year that we get a week-long stretch that stays completely below freezing in the Front Range urban corridor. Today is Day 7 for Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins (didn’t quite stay that cold in Colorado Springs). Although the cold spell did not bring any record cold, the persistence of the cold has been noticeable.

 

There is a chance that the temperature may nudge above freezing on New Years Day, it’s likely to get above freezing on Saturday, and near average for this time of year (40-45) by Sunday afternoon. Even Estes Park and Nederland might get up to the freezing mark this weekend. Dry weather is likely other than a few flurries in the mountains today.

 

The year will end wetter than average for many Front Range locations thanks mainly to a wet period from mid Spring to mid Summer.

 

Happy New Year!
