Denver to hit record high temperatures for Monday

Denver residents hoping for a “snow” day – or “whiteout” day – on Monday should brace themselves for a brutally cold day with record-breaking temperatures.

“As an outside guy, I live for winter, and we’re hoping for a little snow, probably in the early to mid-morning hours. Weather models are painting a picture of areas under 1″ [32 millimetres] to just over 3″ [70 millimetres] depending on where you are,” AccuWeather Meteorologist, Becky Elliott said.

Rookie Broncos quarterback, Case Keenum, will serve as the sacrificial lamb for Monday’s star-studded outdoor Super Bowl 50 rematch. The two “good” teams are set to collide – Denver vs Carolina.

Early indications predict temperatures will soar to a record-setting high of 30 degrees Fahrenheit.

“It may become record-setting weather at the airport and in Denver,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Frank Strait said.

Any afternoon snow showers and wintry mix would slide off the plains by the evening commute, but could dip to as low as -15F (-25C) in areas like the Park Hill neighborhood (Downtown Denver) during the day on Tuesday.

This may not be the only record to fall on Monday, with various locations expecting a record high temperature.

Central, Northern and Western Colorado are expected to average an average high of between 33-36F on Monday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist, Rich Thompson.

However, Anderson’s notch (Denver) may climb to the record high of 36F set in 1999.

The record high of 39F (3C) was set in 1995.

On Tuesday, high temperatures will hold at around 32F – colder than Sunday’s temperatures (38F. -4C) in some spots.

“For some of our mountains, it’s going to be a snow machine,” Straight said.

The El Paso County sheriff’s office issued a snow advisory for the last few days for areas like Salida.

As of 8 a.m. Monday, some areas had 4″ to 9″ (10-20cm) of snow and much of the area was coated with heavy and wet wet snow, according to the National Weather Service.

Also, Denver International Airport has received .26 of an inch (4mm) of snow since Monday morning.

According to the National Weather Service, The National Weather Service, Rocky Mountain National Park had a slight elevation rise on Saturday. Locally, areas above 3,500 feet in altitude could receive a little over 2 inches (5cm) of rain and snow before tapering off Sunday.

“The vast majority of that precipitation should remain southeast of the Rockies and is instead going to fall north and northeast into Michigan and the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota, officials said.

Denver’s nongreasy temperature has been resting just shy of the temperature record set for the date, when temperatures sat in the low 20s (-3C).

But the early June freeze set a warm precedent for July.

July temperatures have averaged 12 to 14 degrees (5 to 6C) above normal so far this month, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist, Alan Reppert.

Denver is usually one of the warmer cities in the US. It stands out as having one of the largest disparity in temperatures between its summer and winter averages.
