An overnight storm has left a dusting of snow on high mountain peaks after dumping hail and rain in some parts of Colorado.

According to National Weather Service Meteorologist, Mike Baker, mountain snow isn't unusual in late August. The snow fell mostly above 13,000 feet and was more granular than the flakey snow that's common during winter and spring storms.

The storm has been moving quickly to the east, and warmer, dryer weather is expected over the weekend.

An inch or more of hail was reported south of Denver on
Thursday. Smaller amounts fell in southeastern Colorado.
