December 4, 2013 Updated: July 18, 2015

Winter Storm Cleon continues moving across the U.S., bringing snow to the Colorado Rockies, the central plains, and the upper midwest.

The storm has dumped over 11 inches of snow in Estes Park and Crested Butte in Colorado; over 10 inches of snow in Gibbonsville, Millan, and Colburn in Idaho, and over 10 inches of snow in many areas in Minnesota, Montana, and Wyoming (see full snow totals below).

Temperatures across many of the affected states were very low, even below zero, on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The National Weather Service said in its Wednesday storm advisory that “moderate to heavy snow” is in progress in the Colorado Rockies, while “a new low forming in the central plains is expected to bring heavy snow and strong winds to the upper midwest this evening.”
