In western Colorado, the National Weather Service says several people reported golf-ball size hail near Pagosa Springs on Monday. Quarter-sized hail piled up like snow in Greenwood Village while the unsettled weather led to a tornado watch for 14 counties.

Actual snow fell in the mountains, shutting down Trail Ridge Road through Rocky Mountain National Park.

More snow is in the forecast for parts of the mountains Tuesday.
