A storm system is moving into Southern Colorado. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to wet snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, as temps will be coldest here. 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. Updated snowfall forecast graphics can be found by clicking the Breaking Weather Alert tab to the left.
Firefighters tell 11 News a homeowner's security system may have saved his house from burning to the ground.
They say the security system detected smoke and called the fire department.
The fire broke out on Golden Hills Road, not far from Garden of the Gods and I-25 in Colorado Springs.
When crews got on scene, they noticed smoke and found the fire burning upstairs.
No one was home when the fire started, except for a dog, which fire crews rescued.
It's not clear yet how much damage there is, or what started the fire.
