Moderate snow continues to fall for some areas of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, accumulating in the grass and yards. Meanwhile, in the plains and along the southern I-25 stretch, light rain/snow mix continues. Take it slow on the roadways - due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing blowing dirt and snow (depending on the region), which is tremendously reducing visibility.

The man suspected of shooting Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Marc Cohn in the head during an attempted carjacking is now charged with first-degree attempted murder and other charges.
Cohn was shot in the temple late on August seventh when a man fired into his band's van in a parking garage. He was treated and released from a hospital the next day, as was his driver and tour manager, who was grazed by the bullet.
Prosecutors allege that 26-year-old Joseph Yacteen shot Cohn as part of a crime spree that involved another failed carjacking and a successful one.
Yacteen's 23-year-old girlfriend, Patricia Vail, also is charged for allegedly helping him while he was running from police. She has been released on 50-thousand dollars bond, while Yacteen remains in jail.
Yacteen also is charged with second-degree assault, aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted aggravated robbery, twelve counts of menacing and two counts of first-degree criminal trespass. He would face up to 90 years in prison if convicted of all counts.
