A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. 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.
The hearing for Cadet Shane Thomas will resume tomorrow and
determine whether he faces a court-martial.
Thomas is charged with using the club drugs Ecstasy and Ketamine. He's also charged with threatening another cadet.
Thomas could be kicked out of the Air Force, forced to give up
all pay and allowances and face 13 years in prison if convicted.
Fellow cadet John-Paul Doolin was court-martialed in November
and sentenced to six months in prison for using and dealing drugs.
A third cadet charged in October, James M. Long, waived his
Article 32 hearing and is tentatively scheduled to be
court-martialed February 12th.
