After warm weather over the weekend drove temperatures into summer territory, a rare June snowstorm pushed through the Rocky Mountain region, bringing accumulating snowfall to several states.

Ahead of the cold and snow, portions of the area experienced temperatures well above average to start the week. On Sunday, the temperature at Colorado Springs Airport reached 88 degrees, 12 degrees above average for this time of year. And Laramie, Wyoming, topped out at 76 degrees.

Once the heat moved out, high-wind warnings covered Colorado and Wyoming on Monday night as a weather system rolled through the area with thunderstorms and even hail for portions of the Denver metro area.

A storm that produced snowfall for parts of Nevada and Utah started to push toward the Rocky Mountain states during the overnight hours and into Tuesday morning.

Alta, Utah, picked up more than a foot of snow, with a three-day storm total of 16.6 inches, as of Monday, according to the National Weather Service (NWS), as the storm continued moving eastward.
