A storm system is moving into Southern Colorado. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to wet snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, as temps will be coldest here. So then, 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 snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning. Updated snowfall forecast graphics can be found by clicking the Breaking Weather Alert tab to the left.
A Colorado Springs man was arrested yesterday after an explosive device was found in a storage unit at 2702 East Yampa. Steven Wallace was in a Denver Federal Court this afternoon, charged with manufacturing and posession an unregistered explosive device.
Investigators believe the bomb was going to be used for future bank robberies. They discovered notes, they say Wallace made about 4-Colorado Springs banks, including employee habits and hours of operation.
Investigators say that ammonium nitrate is the main ingredient of the bomb, but it is not the same ammonium nitrate that was stolen from a local quarry over the summer.
