The snow storm has moved out of the Pikes Peak region but roads Wednesday morning are icy and slick, according to Gazette news partner KKTV. Some areas, including on Interstate 25 north of Colorado Springs to Larkspur, have dense fog.

Colorado Springs received up to .7 inches of snow, KKTV reported, while Canon City and Penrose received as much as 5 inches.

Several school districts in the Colorado Springs area and Pikes Peak region are on delayed starts Wednesday amid winter-like road conditions.

Academy District 20, Lewis-Palmer District 38 and Falcon District 49 are among the schools with two-hour delayed starts.
