Detailed Forecast

Tonight: It will be a milder night, with lows hovering right around the freezing mark.  Low to mid 30s are expected for most, with 20s for our local mountains.  Partly cloudy skies are expected.  For those that experienced a very gusty afternoon, the wind will decrease overnight with most under northwesterly winds ranging from 5 to 10 mph.

Tomorrow:  Temperatures warm up again!  Highs will top out in the 60s and 70s for the lower elevations, with 40s and 50s in the mountains.  While there could be a few breezy pockets, most will just have a light wind to contend with.  High clouds will stream across the region, thickening up during the afternoon.  There will be a chance for a few isolated showers during the afternoon, mainly across the high country.  The chance is very low, but I cannot completely rule out a spotty and very light showers sliding across the Pikes Peak region late in the afternoon.

Extended:   Temperatures will warm even further on Saturday, which will end up be the warmest day of the next seven days!  Highs will top out in the 70s and 80s... we'll likely fall just short of breaking any records, but we'll be monitoring that potential closely.  The record high on Saturday for Colorado Springs is 80F, set back in 1963 and in Pueblo the record high is 84F set in 1986.  A cold front arrives early Sunday morning, cooling Sunday's highs back into the 50s and 60s.  The best chance for showers will be over the mountains Sunday afternoon, but we could also get a spotty shower to pop up around the Pikes Peak region.  The state dries out Monday, but the weather will become more unsettled late next week with cooler temperatures and a better chance for rain and snow.

LEAP CAN HELP

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.

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