Detailed Forecast

Tonight: A few isolated showers will linger over the southwestern and southern mountains, but it will stay dry for the lower elevations.  Clouds will gradually clear out my the morning, allowing a great view of the waxing gibbous moon and Jupiter nearby!  Lows will drop into the 30s for most.

Tomorrow:  Another gorgeous day with highs nearing records.  The record high for tomorrow in Colorado Springs is 78-degrees and in Pueblo it is 81-degrees.  Highs will be in the 70s and 80s... we'll be close, but I think we'll end up just shy of the records.  Expect more clouds during the afternoon, with another round of spotty showers across the mountains.  Winds should stay below 15mph for most.

Extended:  Dry and breezy conditions will enhance the fire danger this week. The weather will become more unsettled later next week with cooler temperatures and a better chance for rain.  Highs will drop into the 40s and 50s by Friday.  It will warm up a bit as we head into next weekend.  Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the high terrain most of the week.

LEAP CAN HELP

ABOUT LEAP


The Colorado Low-income Energy Assistance Program (LEAP) is a federally funded program that helps hard working Colorado families, seniors and individuals pay a portion of their winter home heating costs. It is not intended to pay the entire cost of home heating for qualifying participants, but rather to help alleviate some of the burden associated with the colder months.

In most cases, payments are made directly to the primary heating fuel vendor helping to offset high heating costs. Other benefits of the program include repair or replacement of a home’s primary heating system, such as a furnace or wood-burning stove.

ELIGIBILITY

Colorado citizens with annual income less than 150% of the federal poverty index may qualify for heating assistance through LEAP.

PARTICIPANTS MUST:

  • • Pay home heating costs, either directly to a utility company or to a landlord as part of rent.
  • • Be a permanent legal resident of the United States and a Colorado resident or have household members that
      are U.S. citizens.
  • • Provide proof of lawful presence in the U.S. Valid forms of identification include:
    • ° Colorado Driver’s License or Colorado Identification card
    • ° United States Military Identification Card or Military Dependent’s Identification card
    • ° United States Coast Guard Merchant Mariner card
    • ° Native American Tribal document



Income Guidelines

Your maximum family household income must fall within the guidelines given below during the month you wish to apply. Household refers to all people living with you and for whom you are financially responsible.


In most cases, if you are approved for LEAP, payments are made directly to your primary heating fuel vendor and a notice will be sent to you informing you of the benefit amount.

IT’S EASY TO APPLY!

Applications for LEAP are accepted between November 1 and April 30 only.

  • • If participants received LEAP last year and still reside at the
