Snow fell in areas of Colorado and Wyoming on Tuesday, closing roads and piling up in multiple locations in the two states.

What’s going on:

  • The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings and adversaries for Wyoming and Colorado, specifically in the area of the Rocky Mountains.
  • Four to 8 inches of snow fell in Wyoming, per the National Weather Service.
  • A foot of snow fell on I-80 in Wyoming. The highway — along with state Route 210 and U.S. 287 — were closed for several hours because of the winter weather, according to Fox News.
  • Casper Star Tribune said: “The unseasonably cold weather comes just days after temperatures climbed into the 90s across parts of Wyoming.”

The storm brought snow to Utah, too

  • According to AccuWeather, the storm that brought snow to Nevada and Utah pushed through the Rocky Mountains overnight.
  • In fact, Alta, saw more than a foot of snow from the three-day storm.
