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.
Gary Alflen and Stacy Dahl were found murdered in their home in El Paso County last week. So far, investigators have not made any arrests in the case. They believe a recent string of burglaries in the area may be linked to their murders. On Tuesday, the sheriff's department said their home had been ransacked. The couple's car was also located over the weekend. It was burned and found abandoned along a stretch of Rampart Range Road.
The families of Dahl and Alflen have set up funds for people who may want to make a donation in their memory. The money goes to charities that Stacy and Gary worked with in recent months.
