A Spring storm continues to drop heavy rain with some snow across southern Colorado.

Snow totals have been few and far between this morning with Teller County seeing at least 5 inches of snow as of 9 pm Tuesday.

We'll continue to see heavy rain along the Highway 50 corridor with spotty flooding concerns in low-lying areas.

5 AM Update:
Most pavement in the Pikes Peak Region is just wet. Some snow accumulation has been noted between Falcon and Calhan, as well as most highways in Teller County.

Pueblo has see 1.6 inches of precipitation since Tuesday, which is roughly a half inch away from what we typically see in Pueblo over the entire month of July!

3 AM Update:
Snow levels have fallen to 6,000 feet but for most of El Paso County, the pavement is just wet. Woodland Park reported 5 inches of snow around 9 pm Tuesday night, and as of 3 am the roads are covered in a mix of slush and snow.

Pueblo broke a precipitation record at 6:40 pm Tuesday, measuring 0.69 inches of water and beating a previous record of 0.68 inches set back in 1890. Heavy rain through the morning could lead to a few areas of street flooding in typical low-lying spots.

Temperatures are only just starting to reach freezing in parts of the Pikes Peak Region as of 3 am, meaning most of the pavement below 7,000 feet will stay wet through the morning commute.
