The last time Denver was this cold on Sept. 8 was 58 years ago

Denver tied a record-low temperature Tuesday evening at 31 degrees, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

The last time Denver reached this record low on Sept. 8 was 58 years ago in 1962.

Although not a lot of snow fell over the Denver metro area early Tuesday, light snowfall created foggy conditions in the late afternoon and into the evening.

The National Weather Service issued a freeze warning for the area until noon Wednesday. Mixed rain and snow changed to heavier snow, and the area could receive 3 to 5 inches overnight.

Snow is expected to continue into Wednesday, with light rain and snow possible, according to the weather service. The day calls for a high of 41 degrees. Conditions are expected to improve into Thursday.

The weather service’s hazardous outlook for the area warns that snow on trees could cause limbs and branches to break overnight Tuesday, resulting in some power outages. The cold front is expected to weaken Wednesday with better conditions in the late afternoon.
