Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: We  cannot rule out the potential for a few afternoon bursts of snow... but it will not be as active as it has been for the past couple of days.  High temperatures will only be "warming" into the teens and twenties. Overall, today mostly marks a transition day between storm systems.

Tonight: Lows will drop to the single digits across much of the region, so be sure to pack on the layers if you're heading outside! Mostly cloudy skies will take us through the night. We also can't exclude the chance for a few flurries here and there.

Extended:  Another wave arrives on Saturday afternoon, bringing more snow by Saturday afternoon that will last through Sunday and Monday morning.  The potential for the heaviest snow is Saturday night. Colorado Springs and Pueblo could get up to 2" by Sunday morning, with some heavier snow near Walsenburg. Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning will bring a break from the snow, before another wave arrives Tuesday.  This wave will keep snow falling through Wednesday morning.  Thursday, we are keeping snow out of the forecast!  Temperatures should begin to moderate beyond Thursday!  Check out your 13-day trends by clicking the link at the top of this page!

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.

  • • 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.
