A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado today. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, a few rain/snow showers, and blowing dust to Southern Colorado. 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...
Colorado College seems to be the place to be for this year's high school seniors.
The small, liberal arts school has seen an all-time record in freshman applications this year, receiving more than 4 thousand for the fall semester. That's 20 percent more than last year.
The school says they're receiving applications from soon-to-be graduates in cities like Chicago and Seattle. But that also means there will be many *rejection* letters sent across the country.
The school will accept only about 500 students for next year's class which is 100 fewer than previous years.
