An overnight storm has left a dusting of snow on the high mountain peaks after dumping hail and rain in some parts of Colorado.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Baker says mountain snow isn't unusual for late August.

He says the snow fell mostly above 13,000 feet and was more granular than the flakey snow that's common during winter and spring storms.

The storm has been moving quickly to the east. Warmer, dryer weather is expected over the weekend.

An inch or more of hail was reported south of Denver on Thursday. Smaller amounts fell in southeastern Colorado.
