A snowstorm could blanket Colorado in white Tuesday following steamy temperatures that reached 101 degrees over the weekend.
Assistant state climatologist Becky Bolinger said the wild weather swing is “truly something that I’ve never seen,” according to a report by Colorado Public Radio.
“Prepare now, for this sharp change from summer to winter!” Boulder’s National Weather Service tweeted Monday morning.
The cold front will begin Monday evening with strong winds and rain changing to snow by Tuesday. The precipitation could cause tree limbs to break and power outages, the NWS warned in the tweet.
The upcoming snow storm follows a hot Labor Day weekend with temperatures in the 90s on Sunday and Denver reaching a high of 101 degrees on Saturday, CPR reported.
Meanwhile, most of the state’s Front Range region hasn’t seen a September snowfall in 20 years with Denver’s earliest record of the wintry precipitation on Sept. 3, 1961, the outlet reported.
“It’s an incredibly notable event, and one I’ve been watching with incredible fascination over the last week as its unfolded,” Bolinger said adding that it remains to be seen whether the snow will stick given how warm the ground will be, according to the report.
