A pre-mature twilight settled on Colorado Springs Thursday afternoon as an evening snow storm blew in, and flakes began to fall in southern Colorado and across the Pikes Peak region.

The dense, low clouds may look dramatic, but it could turn out to be a non-event, according to the National Weather Service.

"For Springs proper we'll be lucky if we get an inch or so," said Stan Rose, a meteorologist with the weather service in Pueblo.

"It's a pretty quick, short-lived, not-too-strong of a snow," Rose said on Thursday afternoon. "It might reduce visibility."

The storm will bring a light to moderate snowfall to southeastern Colorado, as well as leave several inches of snow on the ground in El Paso County before midnight.

Flakes also are expected in Trinidad and Pueblo, and could accumulate in southern El Paso County, Monument and Teller County.

Meanwhile, in the northern part of the state, snow and ice cover Interstate 25 north of Fort Collins to the Wyoming border, acccording to the Colorado Department of Transportation. The southbound lanes of the highway near Fort Collins, at milemarker 14, were closed for two hours after a traffic accident block the road.
