A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, 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 amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Some of this year's college freshmen class seem to be having a tough time in school.
The executive director of the Colorado Commission on Higher Education says about 27 percent of students who graduated from a Colorado high school last year now need remedial help in college.
Their struggles are costing taxpayers about 20 million dollars and an additional 8 million in tuition for their families.
Although many of them may have had good grades in high school, the director says that's not a good indicator of how well they would do once they get into college. He says the best predictor of success is the student's course list.
