A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, 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 snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
The results are in from the state Republican convention.
U.S. Senate candidate and former Congressman Bob Schaffer has a sizeable lead over his opponent Peter Coors. Schaffer ran away with 6% of the votes while Coors nabbed 39%.
The two candidates have reached an agreement placing both their names on the primary ballot.
Also, a bit of drama in the voting after party officials discovered some delegates got more than one ballot and others didn't get any.
Both men are competing to replace retiring Republican Ben Nighthorse Campbell.
The primary election in Colorado is August 10th.
