It was more white stuff yesterday in Colorado including in places that needed it the most.

The National Weather Service's John Kyle says parts of the state's central mountains including the San Juans received 2.5 feet of fresh powder over the weekend.

That region received more than 80 inches over a four to five day period, which has helped improve the San Miguel-Dolores-Animas-San Juan Basin snowpack from 46 percent a week ago to 58 percent.

The state's snowpack also improved because of the recent storm.

It had dropped to 88 percent of the 30-year average a week ago, but stood at 93 percent yesterday.

The weather wasn't all good.

It snarled traffic yesterday and caused traffic crashes.
