Heavy snowfall this month has caused “moderate” to “considerable” avalanche danger in the areas around Aspen, Telluride and Breckenridge.

It won't amount to a lot, but it'll help knock back some of the early-season pollen.

The maximum observed snow amounts were roughly 5 inches

Temperatures jump back into the 50s, after today’s wintry jolt.
