You can expect more cloud cover and cooler temperatures today. By later this afternoon, rain showers will develop across the Pikes Peak Region and slowly drift southward. These rain showers will quickly change to snow at higher elevations, and accumulations will be likely. At lower elevations, snow accumulation does not appear to be a big deal.

The Colorado Wildlife Defense will look for support for its proposal in the Legislature's Sportsmens Caucus, which meets next month.
