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.
State wildlife officials say an 85-year-old Colorado Springs woman is lucky to have only minor injuries after a bear attack.
Officials say the woman was leaving sunflower seeds in her back yard for birds and squirrels when a black bear confronted her Monday.
She says the bear bit her before she could get in her house and close the door.
The woman says the bear and at least three others have visited her neighborhood frequently.
Shaun Deeney of the Division of Wildlife says feeding bears will cause them to lose their natural fear of people.
Otherwise, black bears naturally tend to avoid humans.
