Snow moving through the Pikes Peak Region Friday morning is creating icy roads from northern Colorado Springs north through Monument and Castle Rock and into the Denver Metro Area.
In most areas, however, snow is NOT accumulating on the roads, but rather melting and creating wet roads. As temperatures chill from north to south, minor accumulation is possible. Up to a half-inch is the rule for most areas, though higher elevations from Calhan to Monument to Teller County could see 1.5" to 2.0" and the Wet Mountains could see a half-inch to an inch. Most of the snow will melt, so it will not pile up as high as the accumulation amounts suggest.
Through 10 AM the snow remains fairly constant. Between 10 AM and noon, the snow starts breaking up, and by 1-2 PM, the snow is mostly finished aside from a lingering flurry or two near or in the mountains.
High temperatures will be in the 40's in nearly all of Southeastern Colorado (30's in Teller County) if the clouds can break up when the sun is still high. If clouds linger into the evening, we will be in the 30's in most areas.
