Snow smacks Colorado

DENVER (AP) - Drivers are encountering wet and icy roads across Colorado as a winter storm moves across the state with heavy snowfall expected in the Denver metro area.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says most of the roads and highways along the Front Range are snow-packed and slushy in spots but there have been no major closures. Snow began dropping early Sunday in Denver and forecasters say total accumulations in some neighborhoods could be as high as 10 inches by Monday morning.

Northeast of Denver, Brush had reported 6 inches of snow by Sunday afternoon and 4 inches had dropped in Greenwood Village south of Denver.

Colorado Springs is on cold reporting status.  Dozens of accidents reported since last evening.

The storm is moving out, but motorists will still have to deal with deep snow and slick roads.  For road conditions, click here.
