A late-season storm blanketed parts of Colorado with snow overnight Monday, including Leadville and Telluride, with more snow showers expected to continue throughout the high country on Tuesday. The following snowfall totals have been reported by the  National Weather Service for the late-season storm of June 8-9, 2020, as of 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Editor’s Note: This National Weather Service report focuses on towns and population centers. It’s important to note that high altitude peaks likely got much more soon. Keep this in mind if you’re headed to the high country, especially if you’re looking to bag one of the state’s fourteeners. Eight to 12 inches were predicted to fall at the state’s highest points.

Divide — 4.5 inches

Florissant – 2.8 inches

Frisco — 1 inch

Leadville — 2.4 inches

Monument — 1.8 inches

Ophir – 5 inches

Pine Junction — 1.1 inches

Ridgway – 3.5 inches

Shaffers Crossing — 3 inches

Silverthorne — 4 inches

Telluride – 3 inches

Woodland Park — 2.5-4 inches

June snow in Colorado, particularly in the mountains, is really not that unusual. Just last year, nearly two feet of snow fell over parts of the state on the first official day of summer.

Traffic Update

CO 63 between Atwood and Akron (mile marker 56.4 to 29) remains closed Tuesday morning due to a downed powerline. Currently, there is no estimated time of reopening. Passenger vehicle traction laws remain in place over Loveland (Milemarker 220-229) and Hoosier (Milemarker 73-80) Passes.
