Snow started falling yesterday across southern Colorado and has only gotten worse through the overnight hours. Nearly every road in southern Colorado is covered in snow, and more will fall through the day.

I-25 closed from Pueblo to Walsenburg
I-25 southbound closed from Pueblo Blvd to Walsenburg

A new update from CDOT shows that I-25 SOUTHBOUND from Pueblo Blvd to Walsenburg is closed due to poor weather conditions. Northbound I-25 from Walsenburg to Pueblo will likely be almost as slick and dangerous to drive this morning.

Heavy snow will continue to fall through the morning as seen on our model loop below.

The worst snow is going to stay in areas south of El Paso County, particularly along and west of I-25.

It's difficult to estimate how much more snow will fall in the middle of a snow event, but here's our best estimation for how much more could accumulate in the next 24 hours.

Snow accumulation estimate over the next 24 hours

Snow isn't the only problem today, we'll stay dangerously cold over the next 24 hours.

Highs will stay in the teens and single digits right now with lows falling back into the single digits and negatives by tonight.
