Fall starts out chilly
Tuesday, September 22 at 3:19 p.m. marks the official start of fall. University of Colorado at Boulder students say it feels and looks a whole lot like winter.
"The weather? I love it! It really helps me stay inside and focus on some papers that I've been putting off so it's really nice," said CU student Jenette Preciato.
Last night a cold front moved out of the state, but left unseasonably low temperatures.
Most students are already bringing out their new winter wardrobe. "All the girls are wearing their UGGs and everybody's got their beanies on," said Kai Amey.
Temperatures will be over 25 degrees cooler than the average for the first few days of fall. There is a winter storm watch starting late Tuesday night through Wednesday afternoon for the mountains, foothills and the Palmer Divide.
Some CU students are excited for this quick weather change. "We've had some crappy snow years recently. I'm hoping for a big one this time," said CU student Jason Schafer.
The excitement might start to wear off as the winter progresses and El Nino heads this way bringing with it freezing temperatures and snow.
