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.

Highway 24 is open again after lanes were closed because of flooding.
One lane was closed in both directions earlier Wednesday. The water was in almost the same location as a major mudslide Tuesday.
Bulldozers were used to push the water and mud off the roadway near Chipita Park and mile marker 292.
In Monday’s mudslide a single vehicle was trapped by the muck. A man and his son had to climb out through a rear window.
