Denver to tie most 90-degree days in a year, then have one of the earliest snowfalls on record
DENVER (KDVR) – Denver’s Labor Day weekend will tie the all-time record for most 90-degree days in a year at 73. Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday will each top 90 degrees.
Pinpoint Weather Alert Days have been issued for Tuesday and Wednesday, when Denver’s temperatures will plummet 50 or more degrees and turn approaching rain into snow…
Front Range will go from record heat to record cold within days
DENVER (KDVR) — Tremendous changes are on the way throughout the next week. We’re talking about record-setting heat for the weekend and then record-setting cold by Tuesday to Wednesday.
As far as what’s happening here, we have had a very persistent dome of heat that’s been with us all summer long, and it continues in the area. However, it is about to move. It will get out of the way quickly, and moving in to replace it will be sharply colder temperatures.
Saturday and Sunday will be 95 to 100 degrees – potentially record-setting heat both days.
On Labor Day, that dome of heat shifts west, allowing cold air to move in. This will be happening throughout late Labor Day.
Plan on 90 degrees or so for Labor Day, but rain develops very late followed by a sharp increase in wind as a cold front arrives into Tuesday.
Both Tuesday and Wednesday are Pinpoint Weather Alert Days due to the massive drop in temperatures, rain and snow.
By Tuesday afternoon, our high temperatures barely hits 40. That’s with rain and snow…
