DENVER (CBS4) – A cold front brought a taste of early fall to Colorado on Friday including a dusting of snow on top of Pikes Peak.

It’s not uncommon for Colorado’s highest mountains to record occasional summer snow.

Denver has never seen an August snowfall but it has snowed as early as Sept. 3 back in 1961.

Friday’s temperatures started off in the 40s across the mountains with a few valleys dipping into the 30s.

Metro Denver saw overnight lows fall into the lower and middle 50s with a few upper 40s on the fringes of the city as reported by CBS4 Weather Watchers.
