Detailed Forecast

Today:  It will be slightly cooler and calmer today compared to yesterday.  But there will still be a chance for showers and storms, and there is still plenty of moisture around, which means chances for heavy rain is there as well.  Highs will be in the 60s for most, with lower to middle 70s in Pueblo and the plains. 

Tonight:  Storms will linger through the first half of the night around southern Colorado before tapering off after sunset.  There will be a chance for patchy fog again as temperatures and dew points get together.  Lows will drop into the 30s and 40s.

Extended:   Memorial Day will see similar temperatures to Sunday, with more chance for showers and storms during the afternoon.  If you are attending any outdoor events, be prepared with rain gear!  The chance for storms will stick around through much of the week, with chances dropping as the week goes on.  After a warm up during the middle of the week, temperatures fall off too, and the entire seven day forecast calls for below normal temperatures on the high end of the scale.

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!
