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.
The chances of getting out early? Pretty much gone for state lawmakers.
State Republicans were hoping for an early dismissal from this year's session.
But a slew of recently-introduced bills is making that highly unlikely.
Republicans and Democrats in both houses have introduced 49 bills since April 12th and the senate president says lawmakers will stay as long as it takes to get their work done.
Adjournment of the session is scheduled for May 11th.
