DENVER -- A storm that moved into Colorado Thursday night brought the first measurable snow of the season to the Front Range on Friday.

"Snow amounts were generally less than an inch in most metro Denver areas," says Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser. "However, higher totals of 2"-5" have been recorded in the foothills.  And, the deepest snow hit the north central mountains around Steamboat Springs with close to a foot of new snow."

As the storms lifted out Friday night, the sky cleared and temperatures headed below freezing.

"We have a Freeze Warning in place for overnight Friday into Saturday morning for the entire Front Range.  So, get ready to cover those plants and drain those outside pipes," Fraser says.

Sunshine and a slow warming trend return for the weekend. Saturday's high was expected to be in the mid to upper 50s.
