DENVER — The snow from Tuesday’s overnight storm was gone as fast as it came.

The above satellite image from NOAA and CIRA/Colorado State University shows the snow melting during the course of the day.

The storm brought between 2 to 4 inches of snow to different parts of the Front Range.

But the sun came out Wednesday and thanks to daytime highs in the 50s, the snow was mostly gone by the evening.

We have another chance for snow this Friday and Saturday.

Statewide snowpack totals have increased considerably during February.  As a whole, Colorado received above normal snow accumulation throughout the past month as multiple storm systems moved through the state.

As of March 1, the state’s snowpack was 116 percent of median and statewide precipitation total’s for February reached 133 percent of average, reported the Natural Resources Conservation Service.
