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.
Retired Admiral Harold W. Gehman Junior went to Barksdale Air
Force Base in Louisiana yesterday.
The panel is meeting for the first time today.
A Colorado Springs-based commander has also been named to that
investigative team. Brigadier General Duane Deal is with the 21st
Space Wing at Peterson Air Force Base.
Other commission members include civilian transportation and
aviation officials along with NASA leaders in engineering and
Deal led the investigation into the 1997 explosion of a Delta
Two rocket at Cape Canaveral. His final report showed investigators
were unable to determine the cause of the incident.
