Wild spring weather strikes much of nation

Everything was on the maps Tuesday - from tornadoes in Iowa to a late season winter storm dropping snow that was blown about on strong, gusty winds from Montana to New York.

Across Colorado, it was fire and ice - literally!

A huge wildfire just a few miles west of Golden had consumed over 1,200 acres at last check.

Just 30 to 40 miles due west of the fire snow was falling along and west of the Continental Divide - keeping the ski season alive!

Temps near 90 degrees covered Florida while widespread 80s were found across the deep south.

Another wicked storm was slamming the Pacific Coast. In the past few days, everything from heavy mountain snow to flooding and even a few tornadoes have been reported in California.
