The fresh round of snow also caused some chaos on the roadways in Colorado, prompting several closures and activating chain and traction laws.

Heavy snow, falling at the rate of 1-2 inches per hour, will continue along I-25 from Pueblo south to near Trinidad through the evening. Avoid travel from Pueblo southward if possible. Image from I-25 and Eagleridge in Pueblo courtesy of CDOT. #cowx

The snow also helped firefighters working to stop massive blazes around the state, including the Cameron Peak and East Troublesome Fires.


Our crew is heading back to Wichita. They were released yesterday afternoon to avoid the incoming snow storm. Their assignment while at East Troublesome Fire was structure protection. #PrayingforColorado #wichitaks #ictbravest #wichitafd

This change in weather should help with firefighting efforts in Colorado at The Cameron Peak Fire. Thank you for all your hard work and travel safe!
