A system producing heavy snow in the central mountains arrives in SE Colorado overnight Sunday into Monday bringing moisture, windy conditions and colder temperatures. Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has rejected a demand by environmentalists to list the Canada lynx as an endangered species in the lower 48 states.
The decision means the cats with snowshoe-like paws will remain listed as threatened -- a less-protected designation. The decision was denounced by environmentalists. Mike Leahy of Defenders of Wildlife says the lynx still are in big trouble -- even though there has been some progress in the northern Rockies and Colorado.
The group had won a court-ordered review of the government's decision against giving the animal endangered species status. Leahy
says no decision had been made on whether to challenge the decision.
