Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Temperatures will fall through the evening into the upper 20s and low 30s, but overnight the temperatures across the state will begin to warm.  Wind will pick up after midnight, which will be responsible for the warming.  This wind is associated with our next arctic front that will move in, and you'll feel the much colder air on Tuesday!

Tomorrow:  High temperatures will be hit during the morning/early afternoon, with dropping temperatures behind the front.  Winds will be gusty, which will make it feel even more blustery and raw.  Clouds will build behind the cold front, with snow developing during the afternoon and evening.  There could be some burst of heavier snow by evening which could snarl the evening drive.  There will be this initial wave of snow, followed by a second wave that arrives overnight.  It is this second wave that will likely produce several inches of snow for the lower elevations, and will create icy conditions for the morning drive on Wednesday.  The southwestern and central mountains will accumulate the most snow, and for these areas the NWS has issued Winter Storm Warnings/Winter Weather Advisories/Blizzard Warnings.  For the lower elevations, 2-4" will be possible along the Palmer Divide, 2-5" will be possible around Teller County, 1-3" will be possible for Colorado Springs, 1-2" will be possible for Pueblo with less than 1" for the plains by Wednesday morning.

Extended:  Snow will end by Wednesday evening, but Wednesday will be the coldest day of the week with temperatures only warming into the teens.  Temperatures gradually warm up through the remainder of the week with 40s and 50s this weekend.

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.

  • • Pick up an application from any county department of social

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