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.
Colorado's governor says there's no indication that the state, or the country, are under any immediate terrorist threat.
But Governor Bill Owens and homeland security officials are announcing heightened security activity across Colorado anyway.
The move comes in response to the deadly bombings in London on Thursday.
Owens says security has been increased for mass-transit systems across the United States, including R.T.D. buses and light rail along the Front Range. State and local law enforcement officers were notified Thursday morning.
R.T.D. director Phil Washington confirms that security has been beefed up at bus and light-rail stations, but he declined to elaborate.
He urged passengers to stay alert, and report any suspicious packages or activity.
