10/5/2012 Denver, CO First Snow and Fall Colors

PART 1 (0:00-1:41) – Nighttime Snow Squall

The first official snow of the 2012/2013 winter season fell early Friday morning in Denver with a quick half-an-inch of snow falling across the metro shortly before 5am on Friday. The snow lead to the first Front Range chain law on I-70 for the season as well. The snow was a quick hit with more possible early Saturday morning. Most areas saw snow falling less than 30-minutes, but many areas received an inch or less of accumulation on grassy surfaces.

Denver’s average first measurable snowfall is October 19, so this was two weeks early. The official Denver measuring site, DIA, measured 0.40″, recording it as the first official snow of the season.

Video includes shots of heavy snow falling in the lights. Several shots showing snow accumulation on vehicles in a parking lot. Couple shots of vehicles driving in the snow.
