Today’s Forecast:

Areas of blowing snow will cause travel concerns this morning, and we still have icy and snow spots from the light snow that fell overnight. Some of the heaviest snow fell in the southern mountains, but even the half-inch that collected in and around northern El Paso County is making for slick and snowy drives this morning.

We should see dry skies develop by lunchtime for most of the region, but there could be plenty of roads that stay slick and icy through tomorrow morning.
