Due to temperatures hovering around freezing, snow has had a tough time accumulating. Once you get away from the city, snow has had a better time sticking. Once you get away from the heat of the city, about an inch or so has accumulated around Colorado Springs. However, much of the city has not seen much snow stick today. Either way, the snow hasn't caused any problems along and east of I-25 today. Snow has been heavier in the mountains, especially the southern Sangres. As temperatures continue to drop this evening, snow will have an easier time sticking. With the roads wet right now and likely to freeze up tonight, the Monday morning commute will likely be a slow and slick one. Slow down and use caution if you have to travel. Occasional snow will continue to fall, but will likely never get that heavy for the major metro areas. Here's what we are looking at the rest of the way...

1 to 4": Colorado Springs, Falcon, Ellicott, Rush, Pueblo, Pueblo West, Canon City, Ordway, La Junta, Lamar, Monument, Black Forest, Air Force Academy. Could see isolated higher amounts, but most areas should fall in this range.
