Southern Colorado sees season's first significant snowfall Sunday

Parts of Pueblo County report 6-8 inches

Season's first significant winter...

PUEBLO COUNTY, Colo. - After a dry fall and the first month of a dry winter, significant snowfall finally arrived in southern Colorado.

Residents in the southern Pueblo County towns of Rye and Colorado City reported six to eight inches of snow Sunday; those communities normally receive among the heaviest accumulations in winter storms.

Other areas received less or had more melting.

The snow provides much-needed moisture in a region at or near drought conditions; many residents said they're thankful for it and hope for more.

Occasional bands of wind-driven heavy snow reduced visibility and resulted in snowpacked roads.

But constant work by snowplows and de-icing crews kept most highways and major roads clear.

As of Sunday evening, no major traffic accidents were reported in Pueblo County.
