Light to moderate snow showers continue this Wednesday morning with cold temperatures to start the day. Roads are *very* icy and snow packed throughout southeast Colorado... so please allow extra time for the morning drive. Throughout the midday and afternoon, we'll keep the chance of some light, fine snow showers, but expecting minor accumulations through the day. Snow looks to finally push out this evening/overnight and our warm up begins. Head over to the "Weather' tab for a full look at the forecast.
Nearly 800 soldiers of the 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment leave Fort Carson today for the Persian Gulf.
Troops from the 5200-member unit helped defeat Iraqi soldiers in the Persian Gulf War in 1991.
About 5,000 members of the unit received their deployment orders Feb. 15 and are waiting to be shipped out.
Reporter John Diedrich and photographer Andy Rogers of the Colorado Springs Gazette are with the troops as embedded journalists.
