A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Olympic gold-medal wrestler Rulon Gardner resumed workouts with the U.S. team this week.
It's been seven months since Gardner lost a toe to frostbite after being stranded in the Wyoming wilderness during a snowmobiling trip.
Though he's limited in what he can do, Gardner says he hopes to return to competition at Arizona's Sunkist Open in October.
Gardner didn't start wearing shoes again until just two weeks ago and is wearing a larger size than normal to give his feet more room, and he's still wary of having a wrestling partner step on his still-tender feet. Even a mild blow could damage tissue and cause it to peel and scab over.
Gardner calls the snowmobiling incident a bad decision that knocked him off track.
