Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Strong to severe storms will be possible through the evening, before these storms begin to weaken and move east into Kansas.  A SEVERE THUNDERSTORM WATCH remains in effect for most of the eastern plains until 8PM.  Clouds will thicken up as a cold front slides through during the early morning hours of Friday, and as the cold front moves in it could spark a few light showers that should end before the morning drive.  Lows tonight drop into the 30s and 40s, feeling cooler thanks to the increasing wind associated with the cold front.

Tomorrow:  A cold front will slide through during the early morning, setting the stage for a noticeably cooler day.  Highs will end up in the 60s and 70s, but it will likely feel cooler than it actually is.  Thunderstorms will begin popping up around southern Colorado as early as noon, become widespread through the afternoon.  Heavy rain will be possible, so flash flooding will be a big concern.  Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings tomorrow!  Rain will last through the afternoon and into the night, before winding down by mid-morning on Saturday.

Extended: riday afternoon into Saturday morning will be the time during which we expect widespread and potentially heavy rain in southern Colorado.  If heavy rain moves over burn scars or cities that have already received quite a bit of rain, flooding will be a big concern during this time.  Temperatures will stay in the 50s and 60s on Saturday, but should warm back into the 70s and 80s by early next week. Drier conditions are expected to return early next week!

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
