A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, 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 snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
(Washington-AP) -- A key senator has agreed to extend the
deadline for some airports to screen all baggage.
Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Ernest Hollings of South
Carolina filed a bill late yesterday to allow up to 40 airports to
take longer than December 31st to meet the requirement.
Denver International Airport Director Bruce Baumgartner says the
airport needs $50 million and more time to ensure all baggage is screened for explosives.
Baumgartner and other airport directors support a measure that would let them miss the deadline for installing explosive detection systems if they come up with specific plans.
It's unclear whether D-I-A would receive more time to comply
with the baggage-screening mandate under Hollings' proposal.
