DENVER — One storm is out of the way, but a new storm is on the way! This next storm will be even colder and stronger for Denver and most of northern Colorado for Tuesday and Tuesday night!
The next snowstorm will move in by mid-morning Tuesday with strong winds, much colder temperatures and heavy snow - 6 to 12 inches for the Denver area and the eastern plains through Tuesday night. The mountains will get 12-18 inches of snow Tuesday through Wednesday morning.
Temperatures on Tuesday will hover in the teens with a howling north wind making it feel much colder on exposed skin. This will be a dangerous storm as the combination of heavy snow, strong winds and very cold conditions will create very hazardous driving conditions with the threat of hypothermia for anyone stranded outdoors.
Lows on Wednesday morning will be in the single digits — near record cold levels. Light snow will taper to flurries on Wednesday, but that should be the last of the snow for the week. Highs will only be in the upper teens to low 20s, but skies will begin to clear.
Morning lows will be around -2 degrees by Thursday morning, record cold again! Halloween highs will finally climb back above freezing, but it will be a very chilly time for trick-or-treaters with late afternoon temperatures in the low 30s.
The cold wave will begin to move out of Colorado by the end of the week. Temperatures will rebound into the low to mid 40s on Friday, 50 degrees on Saturday and 55 degrees on Sunday! By Monday, highs will be back to near 60 degrees.
