And that snow isn't going away anytime soon as Pikes Peak may get snow all week

Most people pack swimsuits and floaties for Labor Day getaways, but those headed to the Colorado high country this weekend might consider some snow boots as well.

A dusting of snow on top appeared Sunday morning on Pikes Peak, a fitting sign of the turning of the seasons. Images from the City of Colorado Spring's camera on the 14,155-foot mountain showed at least an inch of snow on the summit. At 8:30 a.m. Sunday, the temperature was 31 degrees.

And that snow isn't going away anytime soon. According to the National Weather Service, there's a chance of snow on the mountain's summit every day until Saturday. Snowmass Mountain outside of Aspen received its first snow on on Aug. 23.


Temperatures in Denver Sunday and Monday are expected to stay in the low 80s, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder. Sunny skies could be interrupted with afternoon thunderstorms Monday.

High winds forced the organizers of the Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off hot air balloon festival to cancel the launch of the balloons Sunday morning.
