Take an umbrella and coat for the morning commute.

UPDATE: A spring storm has brought everything from blizzard conditions to thunderstorms to parts of Colorado.

Wet and blowing snow initially shut down about 400 miles of roads in southern and eastern Colorado Friday.

Interstate 25 between Castle Rock and Colorado Springs was closed before southbound drivers were allowed to enter the roadway behind a plow and police escort. Interstate 70 from the outskirts of the Denver area to Limon remained closed because of blizzard conditions.

The storm brought mostly light snow to Colorado’s mountains but over a foot of new snow was reported in the San Juan Mountains. The Denver area got mostly rain and thunderstorms developed close to the Kansas border.
