Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
The Federal Aviation Administration says the private twin-engine
Cessna took off from Columbia, South Carolina shortly before 11 a-m
(9 a-m MDT) en-route to Colorado Springs. The pilot and co-pilot
were the only people on board the plane.
The plane had an Egyptian registration, and was required to file
``appropriate paperwork'' before taking off because of the foreign
registration. Air traffic controllers raised questions about the
flight and requested it land at the closest international airport.
The plane landed without incident. Transportation Security
Administration spokesman Dwain Wilkins says authorities were
satisfied that the plane was not a risk.
