First Snow of the Season Falls in Southwest Colorado

The first snow of the season fell in southwestern Colorado on October 12.

The National Weather Service (NWS) reported a storm would generate “valley rain” and “mountain snow” showers until Wednesday, and forecast temperatures would drop 15 to 20 degrees below seasonal norms. “Susceptible valleys” could see a “hard freeze” by the end of the week, according to the NWS.
