It's late May but snow keeps falling in the Rockies, adding to record snowpack that could mean major flooding come spring melt. Northern Utah mountains could see up to a foot of fresh snow this week with a weather system that is dropping rain elsewhere and will soon head toward Colorado and Wyoming.
A slew of flood warnings have already been issued there. The National Weather Service says up to 3 inches of rain is predicted in parts of southeast Wyoming, while up to a foot of snow is forecast for the mountains.
The winter storms are expected to dump up to 18 inches of snow in northern Colorado mountains, where snowpack is already at record levels. Mudslides, avalanches and flooding could become major issues in the coming days.
