LOS ANGELES A storm that toppled trees, caused scattered power outages and whipped up blinding dust storms brought blizzard conditions to parts of Colorado, where up to 20 inches of snow was expected in the mountains through Tuesday.
With forecasters predicting 6 to 11 inches, Denver Public Schools closed all schools and offices Tuesday. Colorado's largest school district, Jeffco Public Schools, was among those canceling classes.
Denver International Airport reported at least two dozen canceled flights and warned travelers to be ready for delays as planes were deiced. Strong wind before the snow delayed flights up to 40 minutes Monday night, and some arrivals were diverted to Colorado Springs.

Its snowing heavy in the south central Colorado mountains.
Global warming ping!
There are global warming “scientists”.
And there are those of us who persued math/physics/engineering and actually got above a 2.0 GPA.
Since when is snow falling in April in Colorado unusual?
It snowed harder here in NE Arizona last night than it has snowed all winter.
Is the Gov. going to issue free sleds?
It doesn’t happen at this time of year.
Someone forgot to tell Mother Nature its spring! :)
You must live in the mountains.
Rain is a more common occurrence in the warmer months than snow.
Here on the leeward side of the rain shadow, its rare for snow to fall at any time of the year.
Its good news all the same!
High desert at 5600 feet. It started out as rain and almost immediately turned into a heavy snowfall. Really great. We hadn’t had any moisture around here for a while.
Not unusual in my experience. In fact, accumulations in late April are expected...
To paraphrase my benchmark liberal:
“It must be true because so many smart people believe it.”
If you’re commenting on April snow in the Rockies, you’re giving yourself away as a noob immigrant. And maybe it’s a sign that you shouldn’t be there because you’ve got no snow driving skills and you’re about to hurt someone.
It can snow any day of the year in the Rockies. Including the 4th of July.
I live in an alpine desert at 7000 ft. It snowed here a little more than than two weeks ago.
The Fourteeners always look breathtaking!
One of the prettiest snow storms I can remember, occurred on May 1st there.
I have never seen snow in July here.
The point being the global warming theory says the planet is heating up, we should expect longer and drier spells.
The opposite is true.
Actually spring time in the Rockies is the worst time of year for snow. There is nothing unusual about this storm. If fact we need a lot more of them or we’re going to experience another summer of fires in the mountains.
Its been a drought for several years here and it may be ending.
This state needs all the water it can get and then some and the bone-dry climate is no real help.
Since friday up to even right now this morning it has been snowing almost non stop in and around Wasilla Alaska. Totals may be over two feet, I just drove to work through at least 8 inches on the secondary roads, plus we had major snow last weekend, its a bit unusual this early spring snow.
The current snow storm is predicted to deposit up to 24 inches in South Dakota, and 12-18" in sections of Kansas -- nowhere near the Rockies.
