A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado today. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, a few rain/snow showers, and blowing dust to Southern Colorado. 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...
Cramped quarters for some inmates and now, the El Paso County Sheriff's Office says it may stop housing parole violators to ease overcrowding.
As of January 18th, the 2 county jails housed more than 1300 inmates, breaking the previous population record.
Parole violators are usually put in the jails while a parole board decides if they should return.
Opponents say it's a bad idea, allowing potentially dangerous criminals to be freed into local communities.
