Snow was falling before sunrise Friday. The morning commute will be a little iffy in spots, but snowfall totals have been less than impressive up to 5:30 this morning. The snow will back off through about noon, but it comes back after noon and spreads out along the I-25 corridor to set us up for an uneasy evening commute. Snow, which could be heavy at times, will stay with us through the evening and into the overnight hours. Through Saturday morning, 3-6" of snow could pile up along the I-25 corridor from Colorado Springs to Pueblo with isolated cases of locally higher amounts. West of the interstate in Teller County, along the Wet Mountains, along the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, and in the Wet Mountain Valley could pile up to 6-12" of snow. Pueblo's south side extending southeast into the Plains, including La Junta and Lamar, will measure 1-3" while areas along the New Mexico border, including Trinidad and Springfield, will measure less than 2" in most areas. Temperatures today will max out in the upper 20's and lower 30's at best.
From 4-7 AM Saturday, the snow fades away, though some flurries could stay with us throughout an otherwise cold and cloudy Saturday.
