It was 50 years ago today that the first weather satellite lifted off for space.

Wild weather today here along the Front Range - but typical for spring. Depending on where you were in the Denver metro area it was either sunny and around 50, cloudy with incredible wind gusts, snowing, sprinkling, thundering, or a little of each!

In the mountains there was a 30 car accident on Vail Pass due to snow.

Cheyenne, WY also picked up a quick few inches of snow as a squall passed through.

Southeast Colorado has wind gusts between 50 and 70 mph - it was sustained over 40 mph for several hours in a few locations, like La Junta.

The eastern half of the country is warming up and drying out as we head into the weekend.
