The biggest concern for this afternoon/evening will be frigid temperatures. Highs will only max in the teens and 20s with breezy conditions and wind chills in the single digits. Throughout the afternoon, a few light snow showers are possible. Any accumulations should stay under 1" and is not a big concern. Additional snow is possible this weekend...head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
Colorado Springs police are no longer on accident alert status. During winter storms they go on cold accident alert so they can focus on serious crashes.
When they are on cold accident reporting, if you are involved in a crash and no one is hurt, you can exchange information and report it later. You can also delay reporting if drugs and alcohol are not suspected factors in the wreck.
Drivers can go to a police substation to pick up a traffic accident report, or can fill one out online at springs.gov.
