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.

At least four-families are out of their homes tonight, after an afternoon apartment fire. Flames broke out at 3985 East Bijou. That's the timber lane apartments. Fire crews got the call around 12:30 this afternoon, and were able to knock down the flames in about 10-minutes. It took quite a bit longer to get the fire under control. Investigators say it started either in or around a vacant apartment, and quickly spread. An investigation to determine the cause is underway.
