Here's how much snow fell in Colorado during the October storm

Gone just as quickly as it arrived, an October storm brought snow and chilly temps to Colorado this week. Here's how much snow fell around the state.

DENVER — Colorado got more than a glimpse of winter on Thursday when heavy snow and frigid temperatures arrived in the state. 

By Friday morning, some of the snow had already melted, but chilly, record-breaking temps still hovered over the Denver metro area. 

Denver shattered a record low early Friday when temps dipped to 9°. The previous record of 22° was set all the way back in 1946. Late Thursday, the Mile High City set a record low with a temperature of 13°. 

Denver also just experienced the second largest 2-day temperature drop on record when temps went from 83° on Wednesday afternoon to 9° on Friday morning, according to 9NEWS meteorologist Marty Coniglio. 

The largest 2-day temperature swing was recorded on Dec. 14, 2008 when temps dropped by 76°.

If you're not ready for winter just yet, don't worry: Sunshine and mild temperatures are expected to return to the state by Friday afternoon.
