“Battle of the bands” as snow continues in southern Colorado


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Bands of snow will continue Friday, and should gradually lift north during the late part of the day.

By early afternoon, the areas from Colorado Springs to La Junta to Springfield and areas to the northeast are the most likely to see snow, with areas farther southwest seeing the snow end first. Underneath the bands over the plains, additional accumulations on the order of an inch or two are likely per hour.
