Season’s first snow reported on Wolf Creek Pass on Thursday morning

Denver is still consistently hitting 90 degrees, but in other parts of Colorado, signs of winter are beginning to show.

Early Thursday morning, about a tenth of an inch of snow was reported at Wolf Creek Pass. The National Weather Service’s station outside of Pagosa Springs, which is at 11,759 feet, had temperatures dip to 37 degrees with thunderstorms and “heavy snow” overnight.

“Could be a flake or two, we can’t rule that out,” a National Weather Service forecaster from Grand Junction said. “It’s that time of year.”

Colorado Department of Transportation webcams showed extremely low visibility and grey snowstorm-like skies just after sunrise.

The wind chill also dropped to 26 degrees at about 6 a.m. Thursday.

Earlier in the week, crews worked on the Wolf Creek Ski Area to remove downed trees with a helicopter.
