DENVER (AP) — A spring storm that has brought over a foot of snow to parts of Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska has spun out thunderstorms and slowed travelers.

The weather has shut down portions of Interstate 80 in Wyoming and Nebraska.

The heavy, wet snow was still falling in the Denver area Monday morning but isn't sticking much to streets. Driving conditions are more difficult in the mountains.

About two dozen flights have been cancelled at Denver International Airport and delays are expected as planes deice.

Meanwhile, parts of the Midwest, including Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, were hit by strong thunderstorms and hail.
