Detailed Forecast

Tonight:  Mostly cloudy skies will become partly cloudy tonight, with lows dropping into the 30s and 40s for the lower elevations, with 20s and 30s for the mountains.  In the mountains it will be a different story with snow developing during the evening and overnight.  Some accumulations are possible along the highest peaks, and mountain passes will be slick. 

Tomorrow: A storm strong storm system is expected to slide across the state Sunday afternoon. We'll be closely monitoring any heavy rain that could slide over are burn scars, as these could prompt flash flooding concerns by Sunday afternoon. Damaging hail and strong winds are also possible with this storm. As temperatures drop, we'll likely see a rain to snow transition Sunday night.  Highs will reach the mid to high 50s into the plains and mid 40s in the mountains. There could be some slushy and slippery roads along the Palmer Divide and around Teller County that will slow down your Monday morning drive. The heaviest snow will be over the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains, with more than a foot possible.  We'll keep a close eye on this storm as it moves our way, updating the forecast as we learn more information... so stick with us over the next couple of days, and we'll keep you ahead of the storm.

Extended:   Temperatures will remain cool on Monday, with highs only getting into the 40s and 50s.  Showers will continue Monday, but the storm will move out of the state by Monday evening.  By the middle of next week, much drier weather is expected with highs getting back into the 60s and 70s.

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
