Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
DENVER (May 1, 2013)--Parts of Colorado and Wyoming were beginning May with another wet blanket of powder Wednesday.
Blowing and drifting snow was making travel difficult in southeastern Wyoming, but the snow wasn’t having a major impact on Denver's airport so far, although deicing delays were expected.
The storm could dump as much as 20 inches of snow in the northern Colorado mountains, providing a late boost to the snowpack that provides the state's water supply.
The Denver area could get as much as 5 inches, but not much was sticking to the pavement, still warm after a weekend of temperatures in the 70s.
The snow was 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.
