Aurora Public Schools among districts on late start Tuesday

Below-zero temperatures have caused some school districts to delay their opening on Tuesday.

AURORA, Colo. — Aurora Public Schools (APS) and Pickens Technical College will be on a one hour delay for students on Tuesday while sub-zero temperatures linger over the Rocky Mountain region.

APS said school buses will pick up students one hour later than usual at their regular bus stops to take them to school. Schools will still end at their regular times.

APS said staff members should report to school as close to their regular start time as is safely possible.

Bennett School Dist. 29-J and Strasburg School District 31-J will open two hours late on Tuesday.

Air Care Colorado will open its emission testing facilities two hours late on Tuesday.

Denver tied a record low on Monday of -10 degrees. The previous record was set in 1985.

A polar air mass begins to make a trek east today and that will rapidly warm our high temperatures. That trend continues Wednesday as Denver’s high warms to near 40 degrees.

By Friday Denver’s high could be near 50 thanks to downslope warming. Highs in the mountains should be seasonal for this time of year - in the 20s and 30s - with warmer readings in the foothills.

By the beginning of next week, some forecast models are hinting at cooler temperatures and a chance for snow.
