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.
A science teacher at Air Academy High School in Colorado Springs is under arrest for suspicion of sexual assault on a child.
Bryan Paul Mertz, 40, was arrested on charges of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust.
Colorado Springs police say a school resource officer was told about a sexual offense involving a high school teacher. When police interviewed the alleged victim, they got a search warrant for the suspect's house.
Police say because Mertz was a teacher and regularly had contact with minors, there could be other victims.
