WOODLAND PARK – While roads were mostly went driving to downtown Woodland Park Friday evening, the danger of freezing roads overnight remains.

Slush on the roadways is expected to ice up after sunset, leading to potentially slick conditions. Even on cloudy days, about 30 percent of the sun’s light filters through the clouds,which can help keep ice at bat.

Both Colorado Springs and Pueblo saw less than a tenth of melted precipitation for the month of December, most of that on New Year’s Eve. Friday’s snow more than doubled that amount.

More flurries are in the forecast overnight, but accumulating snow is not expected to be an issue.
