GUNNISON, Colo. - Colorado is known for its ever-changing weather patterns and heavy winter snowfalls, but snow in August??
The roads near the top of Monarch Pass were covered Thursday with a light coating of snow and freezing hail mixed with rain, in what driver and local resident Brad Shilling called "slush-snow-rain," KUSA reported.
Shilling told KUSA that he wasn't too surprised by seeing snow in August, as the Monarch Pass area has its own unique weather system.
