May Day snow storm hitting parts of Colo. and Wyo.
DENVER — Parts of Colorado and Wyoming are beginning May with another wet blanket of powder.
Blowing and drifting snow is making travel difficult in southeastern Wyoming. But the snow isn’t having a major impact on Denver’s airport so far, though deicing delays are expected.
The storm could bring up to 20 inches in the northern Colorado mountains, providing a late boost to the snowpack that provides the state’s water supply.
The Denver area could get up to around 5 inches, but not much is sticking to the pavement, still warm after a weekend with temperatures in the 70s.
The snow is sticking to grass and flowers.
It’s the latest in a series of spring storms to hit Colorado and Wyoming. However, southwestern Colorado remains very dry and at risk of wildfires.
