Discussion

An amazing low temperature record was set this morning in Denver at 13 degrees below zero. Not only did this break the daily record by a whopping 8 degrees, but it also was the lowest temperature ever recorded so early in the season. A large and nearly stationary upper level trough of low pressure will keep the region very cold for the next few days before some noticeable modification takes place by early next week. Along with the brutally cold temperatures during the next 36 hours, there can actually be a little bit more snow as a weak disturbance passes through the region.
