Denver weather: Cooldown with rain and snow showers coming to start the week

DENVER (KDVR) — It will be warm and breezy for most of the day Sunday in Denver’s weather. The high country will get a few rounds of scattered snow showers mixing in with rain, especially in the valleys.

Some of those showers will transition into rain and will push into the Denver metro area by Sunday night, ultimately mixing with some snow Monday.

Denver has yet to hit 70 degrees in 2024 — it’s historically late

A fire weather warning will be in effect Sunday for southeast Colorado due to dry conditions and strong wind gusts.

This could lead to rapid fire spread, so avoid outdoor burning or any activity that could result in a spark and start a fire.
