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.

If you're confused what to buy dad this Father's Day, browse at one of his favorite stores, Home Depot. We found you could spend anywhere from $6 to $1600, and get something he really wants, but what do fathers really long for?
Take it from store manager, Jim Martin; drills are pretty popular gifts, ranging in price from $50 on up to $200.
"Drills are a good thing. They're always getting better every year, so every year you can upgrade to another," he says.
If you don't want to break the bank, consider a tape measure, a hammer, or a pair of safety gloves. That keeps you in the $2 to $20 price range. But if you bump up to $40, you can buy dad one of the newest gadgets, a laser level.
What about a garage door opener? Home Depot's taking $40 off on basic installation, but if you want to warm his heart and his stomach, barbeque grills may be the way to go. You can buy one from $119 to $1600.
Home Depot managers say this weekend through next week they'll see a lot more females in the store, and they're there, ready to help.
On a different note, if your loved one's in the military or reserves and is currently deployed, sign up for the “Homefront Cares Armed Forces Father's Day Picnic.”
It'll be a day of fun and games for the kids, while the spouse gets to kick back and enjoy a leisurely picnic.
It's being held at Calvary United Methodist Church on Austin Bluffs just east of Academy.
