The streets are slick and the snowfall is steady, but no schools or city government offices are closed or delayed in Denver today.

The Colorado Department of Transportation says it dispatched 100 plows overnight and this morning with a focus on interstates and major state highways like Federal Boulevard.

"The root causes of crashes last night were motorists driving too fast and following too closely," CDOT said in a statement.

The Regional Transportation District is reporting delays of up to 20 minutes on its bus lines, while trains are running mostly on time.

The roads are another story. Between 5 and 7:30 a.m., the Denver Police Department had responded to 49 car crashes, which is "not great," the men and women in blue tweeted.

Precipitation should last most of the day, but They say it will warm up later, so look out for slush before a Saturday in the 40s.

Be smart out there.
