After a mild Saturday, temperatures to finish the weekend will be MUCH colder! A system to our west pushes into SE Colorado overnight. Snow showers will be possible by early Sunday morning across the I-25 corridor with a change to rain and snow showers through the afternoon. Accumulation should be minimal as most moisture looks to be light and temperatures will warm into the upper 30s and 40s through the afternoon. The main impact will be the cold along with winds gusting up to 40 mph at times. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
A new study finds an average of 27 people in the United States are killed every year in backcountry avalanches.
Snowmobilers are the most to be killed. Five have died so far this year compared with three skiers. And even ore deaths happen when people ski deep in the wilderness.
The largest number of avalanche deaths in the U.S. occurred two years ago. Thirty-five people died that year. In the 2002-2003 season, 30 people were killed. So far this season, 18 people have died.
