Locally heavy rain and snow will impact Southern Colorado through Friday afternoon and early evening. Heaviest snow will favor the mountains, Teller County, and El Paso County. This will lead to difficult travel conditions by Friday morning. Heavy snow will also occur in the higher terrain to the southwest of Pueblo. The storm will wind down later Friday evening.

Scott Manns took a lot of calls in July from homeowners who thought their swamp coolers weren't working. But he says the coolers were working -- they just couldn't handle all the 100-degree days.
Pueblo had 23 of those days -- making last month its hottest July ever. He says people ended up waiting for parts to repair air conditions -- because supplies ran low.
Pueblo set a record for the highest temperature ever -- 109 degrees -- on July 14th. Grand Junction, Alamosa and Colorado Springs also had their hottest month ever. Unofficial readings said Greeley had at least
15 days at 100 or above.
