A strong late-season storm that delivered rain and snow to Denver and the Front Range was winding down Friday.

The calendar says we're almost two-thirds through the month of May, but it looked more like the middle of winter in and around the Rocky Mountains this week. Then the snow will then continue through Thursday night and into Friday morning with a total of 2-6 inches for most areas along the I-25 corridor.

Laramie and Cheyenne are among the hardest-hit cities, though the snow is melting nearly as soon as it falls on some paved areas.

Interstate 80 was partially or totally closed from Evanston to Cheyenne.

Per 9News, all schools in Colorado's Summit County closed Thursday, while graduations for various high schools across the state had to be rescheduled. Snow accumulation in Denver will be less than a half-inch today, if any, National Weather Service forecasts.

After a freeze early Saturday, milder air takes over with partly sunny skies. Laramie and Cheyenne were expected to be cooler over the weekend, with highs in the 40s and low 50s respectively.
