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. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The famed National Western Stock Show is underway in Denver this week, but recent snowstorms are keeping some away from the annual showcase of ranching life.
One family says they spent four days digging through 12 and 15 foot snow drifts to get from their ranch near the town of Elizabeth, just 35 miles from Denver, to get to the main road. Those ranchers made it to the show, but said they almost decided against it, faced with a long drive hauling cattle on slick roads.
Others from southeastern Colorado's ranching community are still hunting for lost cattle and digging out from deep snows.
The annual Stock Show is considered one of the country's premier livestock showcases. This year's event is expected to draw more than 700,000 visitors.
