Snow will continue to wind down from northwest to southeast tonight, and should be mainly out of the state by Saturday morning. Heaviest snow overnight will favor areas to the south and southwest of Pueblo. Mountain locations will likely see over a foot. Watch out for icy roads, and take it slow if you have to travel.
Colorado Democratic Senator Ken Salazar says he'll vote against Judge Samuel Alito's nomination to the Supreme Court -- but won't call for a filibuster.
Salazar says he arrived at his decision after "a careful review" of Alito's record, and that Alito's philosophy would give the president too much power.
Salazar says confirming Alito might weaken constitutional checks and balances, and roll back civil rights protections. He called Alito a judge who'd move the court "outside the mainstream of American law."
Salazar is a first-term senator considered a moderate Democrat.
He previously voted to confirm John Roberts as chief justice.
