WEATHER ALERT: Snow blankets Colorado

9:45 p.m. - Many areas have seen between 2 and 5 inches of snow. Some amounts as high as 6-7 inches have come in. Snow is ongoing still along I-25 south of the Springs down to Trinidad and along Hwy 50 from Canon City east towards Lamar. Snow is still moderate to heavy in spots. Cold temps won't allow for a lot of melting tonight so continue to take it easy on the roads if you have to be out. 

4:35 p.m. - Heaviest snow has now made it to Pueblo and Canon City and has reduced visibility significantly. Light snow continues to fall in Colorado Springs, Monument and Woodland Park. Light snow has now begun to reach Walsenburg and Trinidad so the entire I-25 corridor is being impacted by snow. Roads are snow covered in many places so if you have to go out, give yourself extra time.

2:10 p.m. - Moderate to heavy snow continues to fall through Colorado Springs, Woodland Park and Canon City. Moderate snow is pushing south into Pueblo. Visibility is significantly reduced in these areas and roads are icy. Please take your time when traveling. 

11:30 a.m. - Snow flurries picked up again in Colorado Springs and visibility is still low, though better than the early morning.

Interstate 25 was clear in most spots, and main streets were free of snow. Side streets had some accumulation, but little ice has formed at this point.

Temperatures were still around the teens in the Springs and Monument. Higher elevation towns like Woodland Park saw temperatures a few degrees warmer.

8:45 a.m. -

Many in Colorado woke up to white lawns and frosted trees Saturday morning as a snow system moved in and dumped the fresh powder overnight.

Areas in Colorado Springs saw at least an inch by sunrise, and the snow is expected to accumulate throughout the day. Temperatures hovered in the mid-teens by about 8:30 a.m.

Travelers should use caution on the roads, there may be some icy spots underneath the snow.

KRDO will be updating this article with the latest throughout the day.
