Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Any light showers across southern Colorado will come to an end, with mostly cloudy skies gradually becoming partly cloudy.  The clearer the skies over your neighborhood, the colder the temperatures will be.  Lows for most will be in the low to mid 30s.  With several areas expected to drop to near or slightly below freezing, if you have any sensitive plants outside you'll want to cover them up or bring them in for the night.

Tomorrow:  There may be a few areas of low clouds or fog, but most will start off with partly cloudy skies.  Clouds will continue to clear, with mostly sunny conditions expected though the afternoon.  High temperatures will get into the 50s and 60s, with lighter winds expected.  The only storms we'll likely see on Tuesday will be across the high country.

Extended:  Temperatures will continue to warm through Thursday, with highs getting into the 70s and 80s!  It will cool slightly on Friday, with a slightly better chance of afternoon storms.  Afternoon storms are also expected on Saturday, with a slight uptick in coverage and intensity on Sunday and Monday.  Temperatures will begin to cool by Monday.

NEED HELP HEATING YOUR HOME THIS WINTER?

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.
  • • Download an application from the LEAP website.

  • • 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
