Talk about a quick change. A cold front whipped up dust dropping temperatures and obscuring the downtown Denver view Sunday afternoon.

Across the metro, people grabbed their phone cameras to capture the ominous view.

Denver7 meteorologist Stacey Donaldson said the cold front stirred winds around 45-55 mph and dropped temps from 60 degrees at 2 p.m. to 40 degrees just an hour later.

Hopefully the dust didn’t play havoc with your allergies.

“Unfortunately, it’s only cold air and wind, no snow,” Donaldson said. “Lows tonight will be in the teens for the metro with highs only around 40 on Monday.”

It's quite the departure from the 60s we had for highs all weekend.

Denver7’s Super 7-Day forecast does show snow moving into the mountains early this week.
