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. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has rejected a demand by environmentalists to list the Canada lynx as an endangered species in the lower 48 states.
The decision means the cats will remain listed as threatened, which is
a less protected designation.
The decision was denounced by environmentalists. Mike Leahy, of
Defenders of Wildlife, says the lynx still are in big trouble even though there has been some progress in the northern Rockies.
The group had won a court ordered review of the government's decision against giving the animal endangered species status. Leahy
says he doesn't know if his group or any other will challenge the decision.
