Storm closes Wyo. roads, cancels Mets-Rockies game


DENVER (AP) — Snow from a persistent spring storm system has shut down hundreds of miles of interstates in Wyoming and Nebraska.

Some highways are also closed in Colorado, and the weather is delaying flights out of Denver International Airport. The snow has also postponed Wednesday's baseball game between the Colorado Rockies and New York Mets.

It's been snowing off and on in parts of Wyoming and Colorado for three days, but the storm is expected to start heading east Wednesday evening.

Snowpack levels have usually peaked by this time, but the critical Colorado Basin has grown to 85 percent of the average peak amount after a relatively dry winter.
