It is well known that the weather in Colorado is extremely unpredictable. Please check the 10 Day forecast prior to leaving your home to have some sort of idea of what to expect. Currently it is expected that the highs during the day will be in the high 50’s and lower 60’s and into the 30’s at night. Make sure you are prepared for a light shower if you intend to walk around the downtown area. Just remember, in Colorado layers are your friend.
Please Note: Denver’s altitude and low humidity can and will cause altitude sickness symptoms for those from lower regions. The best remedy to ward off these symptoms is to stay hydrated. We have water coolers placed throughout STPcon for your convenience.
