While Sunday will be a warm day with sunshine and a few clouds across Denver and northeastern Colorado, highs on Monday plunge some 20 degrees colder.

The cold will arrive Sunday night with a sharp cold front. Temperatures will nosedive 30-40 degrees in some areas as lows bottom out in the 20s.

Clouds will keep highs in the upper 30s and low 40s across the region Monday, but a gusty easterly breeze will keep it feeling even colder.

Temperatures will skyrocket again for the day on Tuesday and much of the rest of the week with sunshine and highs near 60.

Be sure to keep your immune system up by dressing appropriately early this week, especially if you are susceptible to getting sick during wild temperature swings.
