Snow in Denver, Snow Forecast For Northern Colorado

Denver has had quite a week. First it was national attention from the presidential debate and now, the first snow of the season.

Update 10:29 a.m.: The National Weather Service in Boulder released some snow totals. Northeast Denver at 7 a.m. had 1.5 inches, west-southwest Denver had only 0.6 inches, and southwest Boulder had 0.3. You can read the rest of the storm totals here.


The pomp and circumstance of the run-up to The Presidential Debate, and the debate itself. Campaign stops from both candidates. 'Carmageddon' Denver style and the closing of a major section of I-25.

It sure was a big week in the Mile High City.

And now snow. Everyone is waking up in Denver Friday to find a dusting of the white stuff. That's just life in Colorado, in the 80's on Wednesday and now much cooler temps and snow. We've collected a few pictures and reactions below:

The forecast for Northern Colorado for homecoming weekend calls for a chance of rain and snow. Highs in the 40°'s on Saturday for Fort Collins & Greeley. Don't forget, Colorado did see snow on September 12th on Pikes Peak. The snowguns are already making snow at two resorts as well.

As the Starks say, "Winter is coming."
