Detailed Forecast

Tonight: The wind will gradually decrease through the night, with wind speeds ranging from 5 to 15mph by midnight.  Clouds will thicken up overnight, with partly to mostly cloudy skies expected for most of the state.  Temperatures will drop into the 30s tonight.

Tomorrow: It will be colder and cloudier for southern Colorado.  Mostly cloudy skies are expected for most of southern Colorado, with high temperatures in the 40s.  There will be less wind than we had on Wednesday, though - so good news there!  As clouds thicken up, we may begin to see a bit of light snow falling across the highest peaks of our local mountain ranges.

Extended:  The chance for snow arrives late on Thursday, but mainly stays over the southwestern mountains.  The snow will begin to spread across southern Colorado by Friday afternoon, which could make for a tough Friday evening drive.  Southern portions of I25 (south of Hwy 50) could see a slow evening drive - for the rest of the area, it appears the bulk of the snow will hold off until after the drive.  Data continues to keep this storm too far south to bring significant snow amounts to the lower elevations, but around a foot of snow will be possible for portions of the San Juans and Sangres -- which is why the NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch that goes into effect on Friday morning.  Snow will continue through much of the day on Saturday before wrapping up by Sunday morning.  While significant snow totals are not expected for most of the lower elevations north of Hwy 50, we could still see some icy spots developing late Friday and through Saturday.  If you have travel plans on Saturday, keep in mind it could take you a bit longer to get where you're going.

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.

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