Overnight a disturbance passes through parts of S Colorado... this will bring a push of moisture falling as rain in the Plains with a few late night/early morning showers possible in Pueblo. For the Palmer Divide, N & W El Paso Co. and Teller Co. it will fall as snow... bringing a few additional inches of accumulation in mainly between 1am and 6am, lingering into the mid morning. Winds also pick up overnight with gusts into the 40s, the winds look to continue across much of S Colo. through the day Sunday.... head over to the "Weather" tab for more information.
Cramped quarters for some inmates and now, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says it may stop housing parole violators to ease overcrowding.
As of January 18th, the 2 county jails housed more than 1300 inmates, breaking the previous population record.
Parole violators are usually put in the jails while a parole board decides if they should return.
Opponents say it's a bad idea, allowing potentially dangerous criminals to be freed into local communities.
