A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, 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 amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Another Colorado soldier killed in the war in Iraq is being honored today.
Friends and family gathered at St. John's Cathedral in Denver to remember, Army Captain Russel Rippetoe.
Captain Rippetoe died in a suicide blast in Iraq one month ago Saturday. Originally from Arvada, Rippetoe was a member of the 75th Army Ranger Regiment out of Fort Benning, Georgia.
He was 27 years old when he was killed.
Captain Rippetoe was buried last month at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
