The snow totals from the overnight storm varied widely from the Denver area to the Foothills.

Denver only got an inch or two of snow while towns in the Foothills got 7-8 inches.

The snowfall measurements were taken at about 10:30 p.m. and totals in the Foothills are likely to go up, said Denver7 Meteorologist Lisa Hidalgo.

Very little snow fell at the Denver International Airport.

Streets in the metro area were mostly just wet early Tuesday morning. However, roads in Boulder and Jefferson Counties were snowy and slushy.
