HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK – Widespread showers will continue today with embedded thunderstorms redeveloping across the mountains in the afternoon. The main risk from thunderstorms will be lightning, small hail, and locally heavy rainfall. The higher peaks could see an additional 1 to 3 inches of slushy wet snow above 12,000 feet. Drier and warmer weather will return tomorrow into next week with isolated thunderstorms possible over the mountains at times. These will be capable of producing lightning, gusty winds up to 40 mph and spotty moderate rainfall amounts.

On Wednesday, CDOT was joined by local health, safety, and business leaders in Pueblo to offer a preview of CDOT’s upcoming statewide seat belt campaign. The campaign will mimic what it’s like for unbelted people during a rollover crash.

The 2023 Colorado Statewide Seat-Belt Study found that drivers and passengers in pickup trucks were least likely to buckle up, with a seat belt usage rate of 82%. Commercial vehicles had the second lowest seat belt usage rate at 83%, while SUV and van drivers and passengers had the highest, 91% and 90%, respectively. The study also found that seat belt use was lowest on local roads –– 85% statewide.

As always, we recommend that you know before you go by visiting cotrip.org before hitting the road. And don’t forget to buckle up!
