This late-season storm certainly performed across Colorado. The mountains west of the divide saw around 4 to 8 inches of snow above 6,000-7,000 feet with up to a foot above 10,000 feet. The foothills near and just east of the have picked up 10-18 inches of snow above 6,000 feet.

The parched plains and cities in the Denver metro area and along the I-25 Corridor saw a good soaking, with around 3 to 6 inches near Denver and heavier snow south along the Palmer Divide and west near the foothills.

Tree damage is wide-spread, as many trees have now leafed out and the weight of the snow caused some branches to break, taking out power lines Saturday morning.

If you are still hoping to ski or snowboard, it's closing day for Mary Jane. Arapahoe Basin continues to be open daily, so enjoy the thick powder at both places today.

Temperatures will drop to around or below freezing, so keep those sensitive plants and vegetation protected.

Sunday will start off cold, but milder temperatures are on the way. Highs tomorrow will be in the 50s, with rain showers likely late in the day.

The weather pattern will remain unsettled and cooler than average to start the week. Highs will be in the 50s and 60s Monday and Tuesday, with more moisture likely!

A gradual warm up is in store Wednesday through next weekend. 70s, 80s and sunshine are on the horizon!
