Spring storm bringing needed snow to Colo., Wyo.

DENVER (AP) — A spring storm is bringing much-needed moisture to parts of Colorado and Wyoming, but winds are raising the wildfire danger to the south.

The second wave of a slow-moving system could bring another foot of snow to parts of Colorado’s mountains Tuesday, on top of up to a foot that fell the day before. Southeastern Wyoming could also get up to a foot by the time the storm moves to the Great Plains Wednesday night.

Parts of southern Colorado and New Mexico are only forecast to get strong winds, making it easier for wildfires to spread in dried-out vegetation.

April is typically the second-snowiest month for the region.

The snow canceled the Colorado Rockies-New York Mets game Monday, has closed some roads and is causing delays at Denver International Airport.
