Moderate snow continues to fall for some areas of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, accumulating in the grass and yards. Meanwhile, in the plains and along the southern I-25 stretch, light rain/snow mix continues. Take it slow on the roadways - due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing blowing dirt and snow (depending on the region), which is tremendously reducing visibility.

The Vatican says doctors are urging Pope John Paul not to speak for several days after he underwent a tracheotomy to ease a breathing crisis.
He had the procedure yesterday and the Vatican says he's now off a respirator and breathing on his own. The papal spokesman also says the tracheotomy "was not an emergency procedure."
The pope was rushed to the hospital yesterday following a relapse of the flu. It's his second trip to the hospital this month.
The spokesman says there are no signs of a lung infection.
The spokesman also says the pope had a good appetite this morning and "the post-operative situation continues regularly."
The Pope is 84 years old.
