Wet weather lingering in Colorado Springs area

Colorado State University closed because heavy snow was breaking tree branches.

All roads on the park's east side remained closed Friday because of the heavy snow.

The 10-day forecast, which includes Memorial Day weekend, appears to be for dry weather, said Ben Moyer, a meteorologist with the Weather Service. A video posted to Instagram shows a group of residents making the most out of the snow by jumping on their snow buried trampoline and engaging in a friendly snow ball fight. Some rain is expected Friday morning with a daytime high around 60.

The high country - from Silverthorne and Vail to Snowmass and Crested Butte - is also under a winter storm warning, where up to more than two feet of snow could drop.

Roads were wet and slick in areas, but on-and-off rain and snow showers will continue Friday with little to no additional accumulation in the Denver metro area.


The highest reported snow total was 38.5 inches (97.79 centimetres) near Ward, Colorado, the National Weather Service said.

The ski area just south of Loveland Pass is the only one in Colorado that is still open for the year, and is hoping to reap the benefits of staying open so late. Because we're due for what could be a significant blast of snow now through Friday evening.

Around 14 to 16 inches of snow has fallen in southeastern Wyoming from near Cheyenne to west of Laramie since Wednesday night.

"Highs will be closer to what is normally seen during the middle of winter, with temperatures around 30 degrees below normal through Friday", Adamson said.
