DENVER (CBS)- If you live in or near the foothills of the Front Range our latest October snowstorm buried you in wet, heavy snow. Many higher elevations picked up a foot of snow or more!

While Denver picked up 2 inches of snow downtown, it seems as though the southern and western parts of the Denver metro area managed to pick up the higher amounts with 3 to 6 inches in many areas like Littleton down into Castle Rock. With the whopper snow total coming in from an National Weather Service spotter 1 mile north of Genesee with over 19 inches of snow!


CBS4 Weather Watcher John Baich measured over 10 inches in Coal Creek Canyon.
