Finally, Some Light Snow For The Metro Area

6 To 12 Inches Of Total Snow For Mountains

Did you guess Nov. 14 as the day of the first snowfall of the season?

If so, give yourself a prize. Friday marked the first day of measurable snowfall for the Denver metro area.

A cold front raced through Colorado on Thursday, first bringing strong winds and then light snow Friday morning.

A half-inch to 1 inch of snow fell in the metro area, with heavier accumulations across the Eastern Plains and along the Palmer Divide. Because it was a quick moving front, the skies cleared by Friday afternoon. Any moisture that had accumulated was short lived.

Nevertheless, the moisture is much needed. Denver is below average for the month and well below average for the year. In fact, we're close to 5 inches below average since Jan. 1.

High pressure will quickly build in the west by this weekend. Temperatures will warm into the 50s and 60s on Saturday and Sunday with mostly sunny skies. Have a great weekend!
