DENVER — A fast-moving snowstorm is causing blizzard conditions in parts of eastern Colorado.
Up to a foot of snow had fallen in northern and northeastern Colorado by Wednesday morning. The National Weather Service says gusts up to 40 mph will cause blowing and drifting snow until around noon.
The mountains west of Denver have also received heavy snow.
Forty flights have been canceled at Denver International Airport because of the storm.
Some highways are also closed because of the snow and poor visibility.
Interstate 25 from Wellington to the Wyoming border and U.S. Highway 85 into Wyoming are closed as is Loveland Pass. In southern Colorado, U.S. Highway 285 between Monte Vista and Saguache is closed.
The storm is expected to move out by Wednesday afternoon.
