It finally feels like winter in Colorado Springs.

After a relatively dry and warm winter, Saturday's storm covered the city and Pikes Peak in a blanket of snow that has stuck around into Sunday morning.

Snow totals across the city ranged between 3 and 6 inches. Old Colorado City came out on top, with 5.5 inches, while the Air Force Academy and Peterson Air Force Base recorded 4.7 and 4.2 inches.

Areas in El Paso and Teller counties saw similar snow total ranges. Fountain, Cañon City, Pueblo West and Cascade reported 5 inches, while Woodland Park and Penrose measured 3.5 inches.

The snow blanketed roads across the Front Range in a layer of snow and ice. The Colorado Springs Police Department was under city-wide Accident Alert status Colorado Department of Transportation reported three major accidents on Interstate 25 between Colorado Springs and Castle Rock, though Colorado State Patrol in Castle Rock reported additional minor crashes.

Storm clouds cleared early Sunday as temperatures steadily start to increase into the 40s.

The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicted patchy fog before 7 a.m. Sunday then sunny skies with a high near 40 degrees and wind chill values between zero and 10 degrees.

A few clouds will roll back in Monday, though nothing that should produce any precipitation. The high is forecast to be 42 degrees.

Temperatures will keep increasing throughout the week, hitting 52 degrees Tuesday and 57 degrees Wednesday.

So far, the weather service has not predicted any precipitation to fall this week.
