Good news for commuters Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service in Pueblo changed its forecast.
Going home Tuesday night, however, drivers may see a light round of snow.
While the rest of Tuesday afternoon and into the evening has a 40 percent chance of snow, which could result in a messy drive home, tonight calls for mostly cloudy skies and a low of 10 degrees, said Randy Gray, meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
"We don't see any additional precipitation," he said. "Any driving issues (Wednesday) will be what is left on the pavement from today."
Colorado Springs residents woke to a rough commute Tuesday with multiple car crashes on Interstate 25, Powers Boulevard, Bradley Road and Highway 115 caused by snow and slick roads.
Smaller crashes were sprinkled throughout the city. The Colorado Springs police went on accident alert.
A crash involving a District 3 school bus and car shut down Marksheffel Road at Fontaine Boulevard, according to the Colorado State Patrol. The road was reopened about 8:30 a.m.
"There were students on the bus," said Kelly Bass, communications officer.
She had no details on injuries, but said the crash was minor.
There was also a rollover crash on Marksheffel between Barnes Road and North Carefree, the state patrol said.
A spokesman said there were no injuries in the crash, a one-car rollover, that occurred a little after 7 a.m.
Roads were worse south of the Springs in the Fountain and Security areas.
The service forecasts the storm will leave small amounts of snow, most of it falling by 9 a.m. A total accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is likely.
Tuesday’s high will range between 25 and 30 and there will be glimpses of the sun Tuesday afternoon. An overnight low of 9 is expected.
The rest of the week calls for a slow warm-up, reaching the low 40s Wednesday and the 50s by the weekend.
This storm is expected to last through Thursday in the northern Colorado mountains.
The return of winter driving conditions caused delays for military installations and schools.
