Heavy snow buries Colorado City
The situation in La Junta is similar to the situation in Pueblo. A large amount of heavy, wet snow has fallen, putting a strain on trees.
The southern half of Colorado Springs only picked up light snow accumulations overnight. Roads in this area are just wet.
Heavier amounts of snow fell across northern Colorado Springs, where some accumulation did occur on the roads. If you have to travel across northern Colorado Springs this morning, you should plan to encounter slushy areas as well as a few slick spots.
