Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: Rain/snow will spread across the southern I25 corridor by noon, sliding farther north by the mid to late afternoon.  The showers for the lower elevations will likely begin as rain before transition to snow overnight.  It is Friday night and Saturday morning when the bulk of the showers will impact southern Colorado; however, accumulations won't be very impressive.  The NWS has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the southwestern mountains that lasts until 8PM Saturday. The southwestern mountains will see 5-10", with our local mountains getting between a trace and 2" and areas along/east of I25 receiving well below an inch.  Temperatures will be cool, with highs in the 40s.

Tonight: We expect lows to drop to the 20s across southern Colorado under cloudy skies. The chance for snow continues overnight. For those who have late evening or early morning plans, be sure to drive very carefully as there will likely be some slick spots.

Extended: Rain and snow will be off and on through much of the day on Saturday before wrapping up by Sunday morning.  Despite not expecting significant snow accumulations for most, we could still see some icy/slick spots that could impact your travels late Friday and through Saturday. If you have travel plans on Saturday, keep in mind conditions will slow you down.  This storm moves out of the state on Sunday, with warmer temperatures on Monday and Tuesday.  Another chance for snow will return on Wednesday.

    Apparently not, in New England at least, where even more snow fell -- or is expected to fall -- Friday, on top of the several feet that socked some places a few days ago.

    Wait, that's not all. After re...

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.
  • • Download an application from the LEAP website.
      www.colorado.gov/cdhs/leap
  • • Call 1-866-HEAT-HELP (1-866-432-8435) to have an
      application sent via US Mail.
  • • Pick up an application from any county department of social
      or human services.
  • • If participants received LEAP last year and still reside at the
      same address, an application packet and reply envelope will
      be mailed to them.

    It can take up to 50 days to process a nonemergency application.
