Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon, though areas in higher elevations could see 1-2". The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Fireworks are again to blame for starting a fire in Jefferson County.
A 16-year-old boy got a ticket today after a firework he set off started a small grass fire at a private residence. Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze quickly and no property was damaged.
The ticket was for fourth degree arson and the teen will now have to appear before a judge.
Fireworks are also believed to have started a wildfire north of Golden last week, a blaze that destroyed a shed and came dangerously close to some homes. Investigators are expected to decide this week whether the three juveniles who allegedly used the fireworks should face criminal charges.
