DENVER(CBS)- After burying the mountains with feet of snow our pre-Christmas blast is beginning to wind down. The storm system is already moving into the mid-west.
So far, many amounts have ranged from 1 to 2 feet of snow and will probably be higher by Christmas Day.
A look at Aspen Highlands snow stake shows well over a foot of snow!
The storm had just enough moisture to deliver some rain to the Denver metro area. According to National Weather Service records the last time Denver had rain on Christmas Eve with no official snow was in 1965!
Many areas at or above 6,000 feet had a few snow showers along with the rain. In places like Castle Rock, Parker, Franktown down to Monument hill.
Christmas Day is looking good for most of the state. There will be a little morning snow in the mountains with clear skies over the eastern plains.
The mountains will get hit with another blast of snow starting Sunday. Along with a few sprinkles of rain over Denver.
Some spots may see 6 to 12 inches of snow by the end of the day on Monday.
