DENVER (April 17, 2013)—Heavy snow from a persistent spring storm system shut down hundreds of miles of interstates in Wyoming and Nebraska Wednesday.
Some highways were also closed in Colorado, and the weather was delaying flights out of Denver International Airport.
The snow also postponed Wednesday's baseball game between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets.
It has been snowing off and on in parts of Wyoming and Colorado for three days, but the storm was expected to start heading east Wednesday evening.
Snowpack levels have usually peaked by this time, but the critical Colorado Basin has grown to 85 percent of the average peak amount after a relatively dry winter.
