Detailed Forecast

Today:  There are a few slick spots this morning, mainly over and near our local mountains, that may slow down your drive into school and work.  Visibility will also be a concern with fog throughout parts of the region. Give yourself a few extra minutes on the commute, and bundle up the kiddos! We'll get a bit of a break from the snow during the day; however, with another wave moving through - we could see another round of light snow through the late afternoon and evening.  At best, we could get an additional 1" of snow... but that's about all! Temperatures will stay cool, with highs only getting into the 30s and 40s.

Tonight: Lows will drop into the teens and twenties under mostly cloudy skies. The chance for light snow continues in the higher terrain, but any precipitation should come to a close for the lower elevations.

Extended: We are expecting 30s and 40s through the weekend.  Temperatures warm up slightly by Monday and Tuesday. The next chance for precipitation comes at the start of the work week, but this system isn't very strong...we're only tracking a rain/snow mix possible for Teller County and a few portions of the lower elevations. We're also monitoring the chance for a white Christmas! Stay tuned, as the forecast will need to be tweaked as we inch closer.

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.
  • • Download an application from the LEAP website.
      www.colorado.gov/cdhs/leap
  • • Call 1-866-HEAT-HELP (1-866-432-8435) to have an
      application sent via US Mail.
  • • Pick up an application from any county department of social
      or human services.
  • • If participants received LEAP last year and still reside at the
      same address, an application packet and reply envelope will
      be mailed to them.

    It can take up to 50 days to process a nonemergency application.
