Wet, slushy roads and snow flurries have yet to slow down Wednesday afternoon's rush-hour commute.

The roads are soaked, which could pose a problem if the temperatures drop, but so far, traffic is flowing smoothly, said Colorado Springs police Lt. Mike Lux.

The storm system could drop up to two inches of snow on El Paso County, with increased accumulations possible in higher elevations and west of the Interstate 25 corridor, said meteorologist Stan Rose.

"The precipitation will start out as rain and may turn into snow further north in El Paso County, possibly before sunset," Rose said.

The worst of the storm will move over the Front Range through Wednesday afternoon and night, with an 80 percent chance of heavy, wet snow especially after 9 p.m., according to the weather service.

Higher elevations in northern El Paso and Teller counties, such as Monument Hill, could see significant snow accumulation, Rose said.
