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.
Air Force Academy superintendent, Lieutenant General John Rosa, says the Academy needs more help from Congress to boost it's minority enrollment.
About 75% of the students at the Academy are Congressionally appointed.
Rosa says representatives in high minority, inner city districts offer few, if any, prospective cadets.
Minorities make up about 33% of the nation's population but only about 20% of the latest incoming class at the Academy.
