The weather over the last few hours Tuesday has been volatile enough to make a meteorologist’s head spin.
First, tornadoes roared from Nebraska to Texas on Monday night, a rarity for November.
Now the same system has unleashed blizzard snow across Colorado in the first major winter storm of the season.
According to AccuWeather, areas near Denver recorded up to 15 inches of snow on Tuesday morning.
Nearly 40 unconfirmed tornadoes ripped through parts of Kansas, Nebraska, Texas and Oklahoma Monday night into early Tuesday morning. One of those destroyed an oil and gas facility in Texas.
There were 22 reports of tornadoes in Kansas alone across the western portion of the state.
Storm chasers like Connor McCrorey of Norman, Okla., had a field day in Texas, too.
And then the snow came. Heavy snow, high winds and blizzard conditions in Colorado closed down major interstates and canceled flights out of Denver International Airport.
The Weather Channel named the storm Ajax.
