A cold front will be moving through the region Tuesday.
Ahead of our next weather maker, expect a few extra clouds Monday night along with a light breeze for many locations. Conditions are still dry and temperatures are still warmer than the averages for this time of the year. This quick moving system Tuesday will do its job of increasing the wind speeds and lowering the temperatures. Any precipitation from this will be just scattered rain for the northern valleys along CO HWY 40 and some snow over Rabbit Ears Pass. It’s a quick mover and many locations will remain dry (areas further south from I-70 will have more sunshine). However, cooler temperatures are expected Tuesday afternoon along with more wind and colder temperatures are anticipated Wednesday morning. There is a Freeze Watch in place for Delta, Hotchkiss and Montrose until 9 am Wednesday as a result. Sensitive vegetation and exposed water lines could be damaged with this dip in early morning temperatures. By the midweek, temperatures rise back to the norm and slightly above. Our run for the temperature record books is over, for now.
