DENVER (CBS4) – Heavy, wet snow is fairly rare with January winter storms in Colorado because the air is usually so cold that it cannot hold much moisture. But that wasn’t the case this time. Our Friday storm felt more like something we’d experience in October, March or April.

In some places north of Denver, such as Fort Collins and Greeley, it was all rain, which is almost unheard of during January.
