Over 50K without power after a foot of snow in Colorado

The nearly 60-degree drop in temperature in the centennial state means rare sights from late-spring storms that promise to cover ground with snow in parts of the state.

More than a foot of snow fell in places like the Black Forest and Aspen Park.

As of Saturday morning, more than 50,000 were without electricity.

By Friday afternoon, the frozen rain started in large parts of the state.

Videos from communities such as Castle Rock, Lone Tree and Aurora showed the first coming down.

National Weather Service meteorologists said that since the state is so hot, it will take some time for the snow to settle on the sidewalks.

The pavement temperature from the Loveland Pass area was about 40 degrees F, allowing the frozen rain to melt quickly.
