Wednesday cold front to bring hard freeze and probably snow

4:25 PM MDT, Sunday, October 6, 2019

A strong cold front late on Wednesday will bring widespread freezing temperatures by Thursday morning and a good chance for the season’s first measurable snow across the lower elevations on Thursday.

 

After the likelihood of scattered frosts tomorrow morning (Monday) the first part of the week should be pleasantly warm for early October. That should come to an end late Wednesday afternoon or evening. Temperatures in Colorado Springs-Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins- Cheyenne will likely drop below freezing Wednesday night, possibly stay below freeing Thursday, and could be down in the teens Friday morning.

 

It appears that there may be a period of snow that accumulates on Thursday (maybe beginning Wednesday night as rain changing to snow). Right now the potential accumulation looks fairly minor (trace-3 inches). But we should watch how that develops since more than 3 inches this time of year could result in broken tree limbs.
