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...
Rock and clay formations that children think look like Neapolitan ice cream will be open to the public later this summer as a park. The area is in northeastern El Paso County and will be called the Paint Mines Interpretive Park.
The county is making the 800-acre site a park to protect it. The Paint Mines got their name because American Indians once used materials there to make paint and pottery.
Wind and water eroded the landscape and left behind clay formations with huge sandstones on top. Iron oxides make the colors -- which fade from yellow to brown to purple to white and other colors.
