Slick spots for Friday morning commute in Colorado Springs

Local

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Colorado Springs roads are deceptively slick Friday morning as some snow fell in spots overnight. Here’s what you need to know before you head out the door.

Road conditions

CDOT is reporting snow and ice on highways across southern Colorado and up to Denver.

A live look at Interstate 25 in Monument:

In Colorado Springs, a full crew of snowplows is out to address icy and slick roads, as well as black ice. Snow that came in earlier and melted is freezing in some places.

We’ll see some improvement on the roads Friday morning, but snow showers will re-develop in time for the evening commute.

Closings and delays

No school or business closings or delays have been reported Friday morning.

Forecast

Friday brings much colder temps and an unsettled wintry day. Temperatures will only rise a handful of degrees through the day, with highs in the 20s and 30s.

We’ll have flurries and snow showers possible throughout the day, but in the afternoon and early evening they’ll become a little more numerous over and near the mountains. These showers may put down a quick burst of an inch, two, or three of snow and reduce visibility. These will be most likely in the Pikes Peak region and mountains southwest of Pueblo.
