Denver sets record high; warm weather to stick around one more day

DENVER -- It reached 74 degrees at Denver International Airport on Sunday, setting a record high temperature for the city.

Another record high is possible Monday just ahead of a cold front that will bring cold and a chance of snow.

It reached 74 at DIA at 1:53 p.m., breaking the record of 72 degrees set in 1998. It will get even warmer on Monday as the sunshine and dry weather sticks around.

The high on Monday will be 75 degrees. The record high temperature for the day is 74 set in 1950.

Things will change on Tuesday.

There is another cold front scheduled to arrive along the Front Range late Monday night through Tuesday. It will become windy heading into Tuesday and temperatures will quickly plummet into the 40s.

And it looks like there could be a period of snow from late Monday night into early on Tuesday in Denver.

Accumulation is possible for some, but the totals look less than a couple of inches. There will be some wet areas during the Tuesday morning commute.
