Colorado Preliminary Snow Totals – March 24, 2017

The first meaningful weather system in nearly a month brought some much-needed moisture to eastern Colorado late Thursday through Friday morning, March 24th.  Much of the precipitation fell as rain from metro Denver northward, while changing over to heavy wet snow above 6,000′ south of Denver.  The heaviest snowfall amounts occurred over the Palmer Divide, which combined with very strong winds from the north to result in blowing and drifting snow.  Here are some of the preliminary snowfall reports from local NWS spotters.
