It will be a shocking system because it will include one of those really famous temperature swings that the Front Range is known for, along with the chance for snow in the Denver metro area.
It could even hit 100 degrees in Denver for the second time in 2020. If it does, it would be only the second time in history that it hit 100 degrees in the fall. I say fall because weather records start counting toward fall statistics on Sept. 1. It’s a little thing known as meteorological fall.
The first time Denver got a fall 100 degree day was last year on Sept. 2, so if we get one on Sunday, it would be the latest 100 ever recorded in Denver, on Sept. 6.
THE SWING: The now already infamous cold front is not forecast to arrive until after the sun goes down on Monday. The timing could change and likely will, but if that holds true, it will very likely hit 90 degrees on Monday.
So, it could go from 90 degrees at 2 p.m. on Monday down to 36 degrees at 9 a.m. Tuesday. That would be a 54 degree drop in 19 hours. A big swing, but just shy of making the top 10 all-time.
