After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon, though areas in higher elevations could see 1-2". The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad will operate for at least another year. The commission that oversees the tourist attraction in southwestern Colorado decided Saturday to allow the Rio Grande Railway Preservation Corporation to operate the narrow gauge train.
The commission fired the corporation last fall because of financial and track maintenance problems. Proposals from three other bidders apparently did not meet the commission's requirements. Both the commission and the corporation have agreed to work out the issues in order to keep the train running.
The train winds through 64 miles of the San Juan Mountains from Antonito to Chama, New Mexico.
