COLORADO, USA — Coloradoans woke up to an arriving storm system Wednesday morning. 

The system bought dark clouds, rain, sleet, snow flurries and even a rainbow to Colorado's Front Range and the Denver area.

The state's mountains will receive a solid dose of snow. Colorado's southwestern mountains could get up to 16 inches of snow in some areas.

We need your help telling the weather story on Wednesday. Two of the easiest ways to share your perspective with 9NEWS are through text messages (303-871-1491) and the 'Near Me' feature on the 9NEWS app.
