Mother Nature brings much needed snow to the mountains of eastern Colorado
While little accumulation of snow is expected on roadways, grassy areas and trees will be covered in snow. Since many of the Aspens have started to leaf out, the heavy snow may cause some tree limbs to break falling into power lines.
March, April and May are the snowiest months for the eastern Rockies, however this year due to La Nina, the region experienced a record dry March and April with little precipitation. In late March, the Lower North Fork fire erupted charring over 4,000 acres, destroying over 20 homes, and killing three residents who were trapped by the fast moving fire.
