A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
The Colorado Department of Transportation reports I-25 and Speer is reopened following a crash in the area.
All lanes of southbound I-25 were closed at Speer Blvd. after a semitrailer hit a bridge. The crash knocked some concrete and rebar loose from the bridge.
One person was taken to the hospital after a piece of debris from the bridge hit the driver's car, pinning the person inside. Two other cars were involved in the accident but no other people were hurt.
An inspection of the bridge showed it was still stable.
