DENVER (AP) -- A storm that moved across Colorado dumped far less snow than forecasters initially predicted, but it was powerful enough to force the cancellation of more than 600 flights at Denver International Airport.

National Weather Service meteorologist Kari Bowen tells The Denver Post a lot of the snow that fell Saturday didn't stick because of warmer-than-expected temperatures.

Some forecasts called for as much as 18 inches of snow, but Bowen says most of Denver received between 4 and 5.5 inches. Some areas in the foothills got about a foot of snow.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says conditions improved overnight into Sunday and roads were mainly wet or dry with some icy spots across the Front Range.
