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.
A popular holiday tradition has come to an end. Bob Telmosse's annual Christmas Giveaway has been cancelled this year because of his poor health.
For 18 years, Telmosse has been Southern Colorado's version of Santa Claus. You may not know his name, but you've probably heard of his Christmas giveaway. He's known for giving away food, toys, clothes and even gifts for parents.
Last month, Telmosse announced his health was deteriorating. He suffers from a bone marrow disease, so he was only going to give away food.
But on Friday, Telmosse made the decision that the food giveaway would also be called off as well --- he tells us he simply doesn't have the strength to do it.
However, he still wants to help Southern Colorado, so Telmosse is donating his entire stock to Colorado Care and Share. That organization provides food and charitable donations to dozens of area non-profit organizations.
