About half an inch of snow fell in the city overnight Friday. Some flakes also fell in Denver but not enough to count as an official measurable snowfall. Temperatures hovered around freezing, leading many gardeners to wrap their plants to protect them from the near-freezing weather.

The storm brought heavy rain to the state's southeastern corner, which is still in drought.

Summerlike weather with temperatures in the 70s is expected to return this weekend. However, the National Weather Service says there could be some patchy frost Saturday morning in northeastern Colorado, including Fort Collins and Greeley, before the warm up.
