Storm brings foot of snow to Colo. Mountains
April 16, 2012
DENVER (AP) — A fast-moving spring snowstorm that dumped up to 2 inches in the Denver metro area also brought about a foot of snow to some areas of the mountains.
Wintry weather lingered across parts of Colorado Sunday prompting officials to temporarily close U.S. 6 at Loveland Pass near the Continental Divide west of Denver. Snow prompted officials to postpone a minor league baseball game in Colorado Springs.
National Weather Service Meteorologist Kyle Fredin says the heaviest snow from the storm Saturday and early Sunday fell on the central and northern mountains at elevations 10,000 and higher.
