First Widespread Hard Freeze And Possibly Snow Early Next Week

Posted: Updated:

With the Fall season in full swing, endless pictures of beautiful Colorado fall colors, and even mountain snow earlier this week, it makes sense that freezing temperatures are finally back in the southern Colorado forecast. Our forecast models have been seeing this freeze & possibly snow for several days now, and they are finally starting to come together with a bit more accuracy.

Here's what we know so far. A strong cold front will start moving through the state beginning Sunday night with cold air continuously flooding into Colorado through the whole day on Monday. This front is looking to bring rain with it, but if temperatures are down into the 40s and 30s like we're seeing in the forecast, we easily could see light snowfall, especially in the higher elevations. The cold air will settle in and by Tuesday morning with widespread low temperatures in the 20s and upper teens in the higher mountain towns. This will be the most widespread deep freeze for southern Colorado we've seen since the Spring.

The snow is the part the part of the forecast that needs a day or two more of analysis. The models only just came into agreement on the timing of this cold blast Friday morning. Before we start throwing out snow totals, we need to make sure the models are still agreeing on timing and temperatures, meaning we'll need to see what Saturday's morning and evening model runs look like. While we aren't ready to give out solid totals yet, we can say this looks like a smaller snow if it does indeed happen with the main accumulations around and over 7000 feet. One thing to note would be above freezing ground temperatures from the weekend melting down snow as it falls.
