    A system moving from the West into the Plains returned snow to the Cheyenne and Denver areas and brought the first snow of the season to parts of Kansas.

    Cheyenne, Wyo., set a new daily record on Thursday with 5 inches of snow piling up from the same system, breaking the old record of 4.3 inches set in 2006.

    Conifer, Colo., received 3 inches of snow, according to an NWS-trained spotter. Eldorado Springs recorded 3.6 inches, and Breckenridge had 4.3 inches.
