Denver, CO set a new record high temperature for the month of September on Saturday, a new daily high, and the latest day in the year that a 100ºF day has occurred when the mercury peaked at 101ºF. And today, it will snow…

On Sunday the temperatures remained high, peaking at 95ºF and also hit 91ºF on Labor Day. Today, though, a cold front will arrive bringing inches of fresh snow and temperatures dropping below 30ºF.

Tuesday’s high will be around 40ºF and has the potential to be the earliest freeze in the last 30-years. The last time Denver recorded measurable snow in September was 2000.

The 60ºF swing from 91ºF on Monday, to a forecasted 30ºF on Tuesday will come close to the state’s record for the largest temperature drop in a single day. On January 25, 1872, the mercury descended 66 degrees.
