Snow will continue to wind down from northwest to southeast tonight, and should be mainly out of the state by Saturday morning. Heaviest snow overnight will favor areas to the south and southwest of Pueblo. Mountain locations will likely see over a foot. Watch out for icy roads, and take it slow if you have to travel.
The Federal Aviation Administration has ordered wing inspections on all C-130-A air tankers after investigators determined that cracks in the wings caused the crash of a tanker fighting a wildfire in California this summer.
A similar crash later in the summer near Estes Park killed two people, but it involved a slightly different type of aircraft.
Officials said the wings of the C-130-A snapped off and the plane was engulfed in flames as it dropped retardant on a blaze on June 17. Two pilots and an engineer were aboard and were killed.
The FAA directed owners to inspect all C-130-As for cracks within four days and conduct regular follow-up inspections.
