That isn’t clouds on Tuesday morning’s satellite imagery

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013 11:13am MDT

This morning’s satellite imagery runs are showing some interesting white cover on Colorado’s landscape and it isn’t clouds.  In fact, we see virtually entirely cloudless skies across the state.

That white stuff is in fact snow, the first covering of the season at higher elevations.  Some locations Sunday night / Monday morning received up to six inches of the white stuff.

Satellite imagery clearly shows the snow in parts of the San Juan Mountains to the southwest as well as the Elk and Sawatch ranges, the Flat Tops and even the western parts of the Front Range mountain areas.

It likely won’t be long before the Front Range sees its own snowfall.  Denver’s first freeze on average occurs on October 7th.  Its first snowfall on October 19th.
