As rain and snow pulls away from the I-25 Corridor this morning, our main concern is fog, which could be dense in spots through the morning commute. Roads are of lesser concern, as most should simply be wet. However, secondary roads and any bridges and overpasses away from city warmth could be a bit slick, so please be careful.

(Denver-AP) -- Legislators revising the state's death penalty
narrowed the list of bills to one, advancing a proposal to
require a unanimous jury vote to impose capital punishment.
Lawmakers meeting in special session also killed a measure to
ask voters whether to allow up to $10 (B) billion dollars in bonding
for water-storage projects.
The Senate today gave initial approval to House Bill 1005, which contains the unanimous-jury system backed by Gov. Bill
Owens and Attorney General Ken Salazar.
It would replace the current system in which three-judge panels
determine sentences for convicted killers.
The measure is designed to conform with a U.S. Supreme Court
ruling last month that only juries can determine whether
aggravating factors in a capital case warrant the death penalty.
