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.

Those who make and distribute the steroid-like supplement made famous by baseball's Mark McGwire are about to hear from the government.
Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson told a news conference that letters are going out to 23 manufacturers of androstenedione, known popularly as "andro," telling them to cease their production.
Andro is a steroid precursor, which means the body uses it to make testosterone. The Food and Drug Administration says that means it poses the same health risks as directly using an anabolic steroid.
Thompson says firms refusing to stop distributing andro and other dangerous supplements may face seizure of the products, injunctions or prosecution.
