After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. 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...
Colorado Springs Mayor-Elect Lionel Rivera is now in a unique position. A very conservative mayor, with a mostly conservative group of council members. That could help push his agenda.
Rivera hopes to do away with 2004 same sex health benefits for city workers. He says, same sex couples are not recognized by as being married by the federal government, so it's not the city's role to extend benefits.
Rivera is also hoping to attract new air carriers, namely, Southwest
Airlines, to the Colorado Springs airport.
He says, in order to do that, access to the airport needs to be improved. "Right now Drennan Road is a two lane road between Powers and Hancock. That needs to be 4 lanes and the direct connection to Powers to I-25."
Rivera also plans to work with Pueblo city leaders, to bring more water to the Colorado Springs area.
He and the six new council members will be sworn in on April 15.
