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...
Fifteen-year-old Casey Goodman is a freshman at Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs. When he was 10, his father was deployed to Saudi Arabia, and Goodman says he remembers how hard that was for him.
Now, he's using $200 of his own money, along with some family contributions to put together packages with disposable cameras, stationary, crayons and markers to encourage other kids with parents overseas to keep in touch with them.
So far, Casey has assembled about 70 bags. But, he is hoping to do more.
If you or your business would like to make a donation to support Casey's effort, you can drop off supplies at any Pikes Peak YMCA location.
The bags will be distributed to kids ages 5-10 on April 5, which is Military Appreciation Day. They will be given out at the YMCA on Jet Wing.
