Records for cold temperatures were set Sunday morning in Denver and Grand Junction. Denver tied the record for the date at 47 degrees which was last set in 1978.

Grand Junction dropped to 48 degrees which is a new record low for the date.

A second surge of cool air may create low cloud cover and areas of fog for Denver, the Front Range and eastern plains early Monday morning. Most locations did see sunshine, so many were lucky enough to catch the crescent moon along with the planet Venus low over the eastern horizon right around sunrise (6:14 a.m.). The rest of the fog will lift by 9 a.m. and clouds will move back in during Monday afternoon.

Most of the Denver area can expect a chance for light rain showers after 3 p.m., however locations like Bennett and Byers on the eastern plains and Lamar, La Junta and Holly in southeast Colorado have a threat for severe weather late Monday afternoon and in the evening. That threat includes large hail, damaging wind and a very small chance for an isolated tornado.

Monday afternoon highs in the Denver area will be in the middle 70s.
