Detailed Forecast

Today:  There will be some slick spots early in the morning thanks to any slush and water on the roads refreezing last night.  The driest time frame of the day will be during the morning, but another round of showers is expected by the afternoon.  The showers will not be as intense as they were, but more thunder can't be ruled out.  The higher elevations will get some minor accumulations.  Highs will warm into the 50s for most.  Winds will really pick up Saturday night and early Sunday morning as a cold front arrives.

Tonight:  We'll see a few more scattered showers through tonight that may some additional accumulations across the mountains and along the Palmer Divide.  Tonight's showers will mainly impact the high country, but lower elevations along I-25 will see a chance for rain and snow as well.  Lows will be a little warmer than they will be this morning, dropping into the 30s for most areas.  We'll see 20s in the mountains. 

Extended:  A cold front arrives early Sunday, and that will help to kick the winds up to between 30 and 40 mph.  Temperatures will still top out in the 50s on Sunday, with another round of showers expected.  Unsettled conditions will last through most of next week, meaning that we'll keep a chance for showers in the forecast until Thursday.  Eventually it gets warmer by midweek, with 60s and 70s expected on Wednesday.

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.
