Detailed Forecast

This afternoon: We're tracking clearing skies and more sunshine today.  Despite getting more sunshine, temperatures should end up very similar to those of Thursday.  Highs will be in the 30s and 40s for most. 

Tonight: Lows will drop into the teens and twenties across southern Colorado under mostly clear skies. Dry conditions and light winds are anticipated during this period.

Extended: If you are traveling to your holiday destination early this weekend, you won't encounter any weather-related issues in Colorado!  We expect quiet and dry conditions through Sunday, with temperatures warming into the 40s and 50s. Any weekend snow will take place in the higher terrain, along the continental divide. Monday will be a wild day of weather, however, with temperatures warming into the 50s to near 60s in the morning before a cold front moves through during the second half of the day.  Temperatures will plummet during the afternoon/evening, with a rain/snow mix developing and expanding.  We'll get a break from the showers Tuesday and Wednesday... but late Wednesday and on Christmas Day our next storm system is going to move in potentially bringing a White Christmas!  It's too early to narrow down the details just yet, but we'll be keeping a very close eye on this storm system as it approaches.

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.
  • • 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.
