Bitterly cold start to Tuesday in southern Colorado


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Monday’s snow has turned to ice as the Pikes Peak region wakes up to temperatures in the single digits Tuesday morning.

Drivers headed out Tuesday morning should be prepared for icy roads, as the snow that partially melted Monday has re-frozen. Allow extra time and take it slow on your commute.

Colorado Springs snow removal crews are on full call-out Tuesday morning, focusing on secondary roadways and school zones. The Tuesday afternoon shift will also be on full call-out to continue the cleanup effort. The city expects road conditions to improve as crews continue their work, temperatures increase, and applied materials activate.

Two school districts are on a delayed start Tuesday morning, but most area schools, military posts, and businesses are operating on a normal schedule.

We’ll warm up a bit today but it will still be chilly! Highs make it to the 30s for most under a good amount of sunshine. This will help us melt off a bit of our most recent snow, but there will still be a ways to go.
