Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
Attorney General Ken Salazar has asked the U-S Supreme Court to turn down a Republican request to temporarily block a congressional redistricting plan.
A stay would allow Secretary of State Donetta Davidson to use a GOP redistricting plan for the November elections while the Supreme Court decides whether to get involved.
The state Supreme Court last year ruled in favor of Salazar when he asked justices to throw out a map drawn up by Republican lawmakers and reinstate boundaries drawn by a judge in 2002.
The state court said lawmakers can redraw the maps only after every census and before the ensuing general election.
