DENVER, Colorado — The incoming winter storm that is forecast to arrive on the Front Range Thursday and Friday has many Coloradans wondering if they should blow out their sprinkler lines early.
While the storm will be a little colder than we are used to seeing with our October storms, (into the teens for a couple of hours) it won’t be cold enough to freeze irrigation pipes that are buried under 8-12 inches of dirt, which acts as an insulator, especially with daytime highs in the upper 70s the day before the storm.
Ready or not, here comes the snow and cold. Temperatures are expected to plunge 50 degrees later in the week. Up to 6 inches of snow could accumulate in the northern and central mountains while a few inches could fall in the Denver metro area.

The aurora borealis, or northern lights, may be visible in Colorado Friday-Sunday, Sept. 27-29, due to enhanced geomagnetic storm activity according to this article on Patch.
This map put out by NOAA shows how Colorado, in the red ring, has the rare opportunity to see the northern lights.

DENVER — After a warm weekend, Mother Nature has turned a cold shoulder to Colorado! Temperatures tumbled behind a strong cold front yesterday and while today won’t be as cold, temperatures are still well below average.
We’ll see highs in the upper 40s to near 50s degrees this afternoon. Along with the cold, we’ll also get some moisture. We saw some light snow overnight but the roads are mainly just wet for the morning commute. We picked up about an inch of snow near Denver, with 2 to 4 inches from Westminster north to Fort Collins. Accumulations of 8 to 16 inches can be expected in the mountains above 10,000 feet and will stay the heaviest in the mountains north of I-70.
