Denver will remain about 10 degrees below average temperatures for this time of year on Tuesday, with chances for heavy rain later in the week. Some high mountain passes dropped below freezing and even received dusting in the past few days as Colorado has been in a cooling trend.
Mount Massive was forecasted to get 6 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday by Mountain-Forecast.com. Totals haven’t been announced yet, but Mount Elbert, La Plata Peak, Mount Princeton, Mount Shavano and Mount Belford were all projected to get 5 inches of snow, with some even falling below the tree line. More snow is possible at the top of these peaks over the next few nights.
Denver received measurable rainfall the past 4 days with chances for rain continuing through the rest of the week. This is actually quite abnormal for the last week of June since it historically has the lowest probability of rain during the Spring and Summer months. #COwx https://t.co/TO9rqUC5xd
