Wild weather continues in Rocky Mountains, Eastern Plains

DENVER (AP) — A large storm that brought a series of tornadoes to eastern Colorado has dumped up to a foot of snow in Wyoming and is expected to continue to bring hail and rain to the Rocky Mountains and Eastern Plains through Monday.

National Weather Service forecaster Timothy Trudel said Sunday a foot of snow has already fallen on mountain ranges about 40 miles west of Laramie.

He says the storm stalled over the Rockies and is expected to move toward Nebraska where it could stall again.

The weather service in Boulder said it tracked at least one tornado on Saturday in eastern Colorado that had winds up to 135 miles per hour and was on the ground for about 9 miles, injuring two people and damaging buildings and motor homes.
