From the Fort Collins Coloradoan (Sarah Jane Kyle):

It’s beginning to look a lot like winter in Fort Collins. The National Weather Service reported 14 inches of snow in some parts of Fort Collins on Sunday…

National Weather Service meteorologist Jim Kalina said the storm dumped 7 inches of snow in parts of Denver by late Sunday morning, and more is expected through Sunday night. Some areas in the foothills west of Denver received 19 inches to 21 inches of snow, and Kalina said some parts of Fort Collins have reported 14 inches.

From The Greeley Tribune (Analisa Romano):

Snowfall tapered off in the evening after falling the previous night to total more than 5 inches in Greeley, with little more precipitation expected through the night, according to meteorologists. Weld County and Greeley officials said no other major crashes were reported on Sunday, although both entities went on accident alert, meaning enough minor crashes occurred that they didn’t have the resources to deploy officers to those that were not serious. They reported road conditions as icy and snowpacked, with poor visibility throughout the county.

From The Pueblo Chieftain (Ryan Severance):

Another quick-moving snowstorm swept through Pueblo on Sunday, bringing more much-needed moisture to the area. According to the National Weather Service, Pueblo received two inches of snow at the Pueblo Memorial Airport and as much as three inches in other parts of town. The snow made a nice blanket over trees and grass, but didn’t accumulate much on the roads and left them mainly wet. Wind gusts got all the way up to 39 mph in the afternoon, and the longest sustained wind gust of the day was 32 mph, according to the NWS.

Both Walsenburg and Canon City received an inch of snow. In Wetmore, snow accumulations were measured at four inches. Beulah and Rye received the most snow with five and six inches, respectively.

“We were talking in the order of Pueblo getting two to four inches of snow, so this is about what we expected,” Randy Gray, with the NWS, said.
