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.
Police in Thornton are trying to learn the identity of a body found in a sport utility vehicle in a small retention pond.
Police say they do not know whether the victim is a man or a woman, or how long the body was submerged.
The Chevrolet Suburban was discovered Monday by workers pumping water out of the pond and filling it with dirt. The retention pond was surrounded by a fence on city property.
The vehicle was removed with the body still inside. Police are awaiting a search warrant to further examine the vehicle.
