COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Foggy conditions are persisting through much of southern Colorado Thursday morning. Here’s what you need to know.

Road conditions

Overnight rain and snow showers have many roads wet, but watch out over mountain passes for some slick spots. Dense fog is also causing low visibility in some areas.

CDOT reports some wet areas, but mostly dry conditions on highways across southern Colorado and up to Denver.

Closings and delays

No weather-related school or business closings or delays have been reported Thursday.

Forecast

Showers have been lifting off to the northeast and as we head through the rest of the day most of the showers will be over the mountains. We’ll be chilly again, but the needle is starting to move up with highs in the 40s and 50s for most and a bit of afternoon sun.

Tonight, scattered snow showers gradually shift north over mountain areas. Higher areas of the mountains could see additional accumulations through Thursday into early Friday on the order of three to six inches, with a few spots getting a little bit more than that.

Lower elevations will be cloudy to mostly cloudy overnight. With our recent snow and rain, a few areas of fog are likely to develop again. Low temperatures will be in the 30s and even a few 40s unless you’re pretty high in the mountains where some areas will drop into the 20s.
