DENVER — A spring storm is bringing a taste of all seasons to Colorado.

Multiple accidents closed snowy eastbound I-70 from Silverthorne to the Eisenhower Tunnel Friday morning. An accident also closed the highway in Idaho Springs overnight. It reopened Friday but was closed again within 20 minutes after multiple tractor-trailers jackknifed.

While more heavy, wet snow is expected to continue falling in the mountains and foothills, rain is expected on the plains. Some severe thunderstorms with hail are also possible in northeast.

The southeast corner of the state is being bypassed by the storm. Instead of a storm warning, a red flag warning is in effect in eastern Las Animas and Baca counties.
