Colorado, Wyoming Dig Out from Spring Snowstorm

Operations at Denver International Airport are expected to return to normal this afternoon

DENVER (AP) — The “bomb cyclone” fizzled but the spring snowstorm that hit Colorado and Wyoming still left behind hazardous road conditions, snarled airport traffic and wintertime temperatures.

Blizzard conditions persisted in the northeast corner of Colorado Thursday morning, but blizzard warnings were dropped for the rest of the state and Wyoming.

Meteorologist Andrew Lyons says the storm didn’t develop to the caliber of the March 13 blizzard that struck the two states and Montana.

Still, the storm closed schools and government offices in both states and some schools delayed reopening Thursday morning.

Road crews were working to reopen hundreds of miles of interstate in northeast Colorado.

Denver International Airport was open but hundreds of flights were canceled or delayed Thursday morning. Operations are expected to return to normal this afternoon.
