More snow needed despite latest storm

DENVER -- So much of Denver and Colorado were covered in snow after the weekend storm.

Denver recorded 5.7 inches on Sunday at Denver International Airport, the official recording station for the city by the National Weather Service.

That's more snow from a single storm all season. and more snow since Dec. 16, 2016, when more than 4 inches were recorded.

However, that only gives Denver 13.2 inches for the season to date. The average this time of year is closer to 28 inches.

A normal snow season brings around 57 inches of snow on average to Denver.  So, more snow is needed.

The weather pattern for the upcoming week looks quiet. Expect sunshine and a warming trend through Thursday when highs could reach near 60 degrees.

That will mean most of the city snow will be melting. There might be a passing flurry on Friday. Otherwise, the weekend and early next week are also void of snow.
