While flash flooding was causing mudslides and lightning was sending people to hospitals east of the mountains, the Thursday weather scene was a little less threatening while still be a little off.
At Loveland Ski Area, a light dusting of snow coated the mountains Thursday afternoon. Snow well mainly above 11,000 feet, but often snow levels are even higher in the summer months. This comes just 70 days before Loveland is set to begin its snowmaking operations.
While some may realize snow does occasionally fall in the mountains, even in the summer, many may think snow in July may mean an early start to winter or even a more harsh winter. That is not necessarily true.
