Denver (AP) - Forecasters say a spring storm moving slowly eastward from Utah is expected to affect much of Colorado through Saturday, in the form of either rain or snow.

State transportation officials say Interstate 25 already has been shut down from Wellington, about 65 miles north of Denver, to the Wyoming state line because of snowy, slushy conditions.

Also closed is U.S. 287 from Ted's place, north of Fort Collins, to the Wyoming line.

The National Weather Service says the storm is expected to bring widespread snowfall to the mountains, so travel over all mountain passes will be hazardous through Saturday morning.

Heavy, wet snow also is expected along the foothills and the Front Range urban corridor.

Frontier and United Airlines are advising passengers to check on their flights before leaving for the Denver International Airport.
