Detailed Forecast

Today: Clouds will thicken up as a cold front slides through during the early morning hours. As the cold front moves in, it could spark a few light showers that should end before the morning drive. This cold front make for a noticeably cooler day.  Highs will end up in the 60s and 70s, but it will likely feel cooler than it actually is.  Thunderstorms will begin popping up around southern Colorado as early as noon, become widespread through the afternoon.  Heavy rain will be possible, so flash flooding will be a big concern.  Be sure to stay aware of your surroundings today! Rain will last through the afternoon and into the night, before winding down by mid-morning on Saturday.

Tonight: Lows should drop to the 30s and 40s for most with mostly cloudy skies. There is the potential for lingering showers overnight - be sure to keep the rain jacket handy for any Friday evening plans! Stick with us as we track any new developments.

Extended: Friday afternoon into Saturday morning will be the time during which we expect widespread and potentially heavy rain in southern Colorado.  If heavy rain moves over burn scars or cities that have already received quite a bit of rain, flooding will be a big concern during this time.  Temperatures will stay in the 50s and 60s on Saturday, but should warm back into the 70s and 80s by early next week. Drier conditions are expected to return early next week!

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!
