Winter Storm

By  | 

A fast-moving storm dumped up to eight inches of wet, slushy snow Wednesday along the Front Range.

The wet stuff snarled the morning commute and gave eastern Colorado a taste of the weather that's battered the Western Slope for nearly two weeks.

But that's not bothering Wade Johnson of Lakewood. He hopes the storms signal an end to a drought that has crippled Colorado and other parts of the West for several years.

The 40-year-old says he's tired of water restrictions, so the more snow, the better.

Most of the Front Range got three to four inches of snow this morning. Roxborough State Park southwest of Denver reported eight inches.

As the storm moves south and east, temperatures are expected to drop into the teens or single digits overnight before warming back up.
