The snow that moved through areas this morning wasn't much, but sure did cause some issues in Douglas County and the biggest impact shifts to the Plains for the remainder of the day and night.

It's important to remember that new snow on top of the icy snowpack from previous storms is a dangerous combination.

Barb Nicolson shared this picture with us this morning from south of Castle Rock:

Pretty good snowfall in Keene Ranch (unincorporated Douglas County near the town of Castle Rock. (6200') There's a couple of inches on my patio table, too.

Put it all together and here's the timeline of temperatures and snowfall chances for Denver.
