The snow began tapering off pretty early this morning but not until after it left 4 to 8 inches of the white stuff across much of the metro area.  ThorntonWeather.com recorded 4.4 inches but that probably was a bit more – it was just tough to measure as the wind and blown it all over the place.  We had some spots with an inch and others with a foot.  Thornton seemed to do a good job clearing the major streets but of course residential and side streets were pretty slick. 

Today we’ll warm up to just above freezing at 33 degrees and Wednesday is looking very nice reaching near 50 degrees.  Thursday there is a slight chance of snow but we are really keeping our eye on the period between Saturday and Monday as there is greater potential there for more snow.  Stay tuned.

In the meantime, here are some of the storm reports from across the region:
