A system moving from the West into the Plains has brought the first snow of the season to many parts of Colorado. Cheyenne, Wyo., set a new record for the date with 5 inches of snow piling up from the same system, breaking the old record of 4.3 inches set in 2006.
Conifer, Colo., received 3 inches of snow, according to an NWS-trained spotter. Eldorado Springs recorded 3.6 inches, and Breckenridge had 4.3 inches.
The system will continue pushing east and has already dropped up to 6 inches of snow in some parts of Kansas.

Just a trace of snow in the yard this morning here in COS, ground temperatures preventing much accumulation #cowx pic.twitter.com/9Vp7RY3Fk2— Tim Stoecklein (@TornadoTimmy) October 18, 2013
