Colorado Springs woke up Thursday to dry roads and frosted-over lawns, but northern El Paso and Teller counties got several inches of snow, according to the National Weather Service.

Trace amounts of snow were measured at the Colorado Springs Airport but the brunt of the storm was north of the city, said meteorologist Patrick Cioffi.

Black Forest reported up to three inches of snow, further north in Monument up to 3.5 inches and northeast of the Air Force Academy got almost five inches of powder, said Cioffi.

Snow piled up in Woodland Park, where spotters reported 6.5 inches and up to seven inches in Divide.

Mostly sunny conditions were expected in Colorado Springs Thursday, with a high near 55, the weather service said.

"It's going to be a pretty nice day, so any accumulation will likely melt," Cioffi said.

Thursday night could be partly cloudy, with temperatures hovering in the mid 30s over night with calm winds.

Mostly sunny conditions and a high about 70 degrees is in the forecast for Friday, with another round of clouds predicted to roll into the Pikes Peak region Saturday with scattered showers and a few thunderstorms, Cioffi said.
