Some of the highest snow totals Wednesday were seen in Colorado as a major winter storm continues to span across a 2,000-plus-mile path.
Heavy snow bands and small-scale weather features meant some areas of Colorado saw more snow than places only several miles away.
In Security, Colorado, located just south of Colorado Springs, recorded 22 inches of snow from the storm.
Other locations in central Colorado saw more than a foot of snow too. The Springs recorded 20 inches, and the Air Force Academy received 14 inches of snow.
Just an hour north in Denver, snow totals ranged from five inches to more than a foot.
Due to an area of convergence, snow bands were amplified across portions of the Denver metro.
The National Weather Service in Boulder said due to this convergence, peak snowfall rates likely reached 3 inches per hour.
The top snow total from this convergence was 13.6 inches just north of Denver in Commerce City. Denver International Airport, not within this convergence area and just 9 miles to the east, only picked up 2.7" of snow.
And while Colorado is blanketed with fresh powder, they’ll need real blankets to keep warm overnight.
High temperatures Thursday will remain below freezing, keeping plenty of snow piles around.
