Travelers can expect hazardous road conditions Friday morning, especially along mountain passes, the National Weather Service in Pueblo said Friday morning.

In Highlands Ranch, Douglas County Sheriff deputies, Arapahoe Rescue Patrol volunteers and South Metro fire crews shoveled a path through the snow so paramedics could carry a waiting patient to the ambulance for transport to the hospital.

“Road conditions are still severe in several places,” Jeffcom 911 dispatch tweeted Friday morning. “Please stay home if you are able.”
