A strong upper low moving through the central Rockies dumped heavy snow across parts of Colorado Wednesday evening through Thursday. Most snow has moved out of the Denver metro as of Thursday morning but snow will continue along the I-25 corridor in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico through the early afternoon.
Winter weather alerts continue through the early afternoon for areas in purple, but additional accumulations shouldn't be more than 1-2". Overall snow totals will be 2-6" in highligted spots with isolated higher totals.
Heavy snow fell overnight across the Denver metro. Here are some of the highest totals from around the metro area as of 8 am:
By late afternoon, most of the snow will end across the area with sunshine returning for many. Temperatures will be chilly but some melting will occur as the sun comes out.
Snow over the last week has mainly been from this event. Most of the snow in Colorado previously was west of I-25 and in the mountains.
