Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
Colorado Springs city officials say Mother Nature was their worst enemy during a recent blast of snow.
The streets division went on full call out Wednesday.
The quick hitting snow falling on warm asphalt mixed with plummeting temperatures turned roads into dangerous ice-rinks.
Even with each city plow and grader on local streets, every element came together into a perfect rush hour mess.
"People left early to beat the weather and our snow plows got backed up in rush hour traffic too," said city spokesperson Mary Scott.
City council recently agreed to add more salt into the city's sand trucks to help melt freezing roads.
Scott says city crews are still waiting for those salt supplies to come in.
