A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, 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 amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
Emergency crews are on the scene of a freight train derailment and hazardous material spill in southern New Jersey.
The Gloucester County Times (http://bit.ly/V8rH3L ) reports four tank cars were dumped into Mantua Creek in Paulsboro Friday and are leaking vinyl chloride.
A spokesman for the state Environmental Protection Department says officials are trying to determine what the cars were carrying.
TV helicopter footage shows at least two tankers in the creek and one hanging over a trestle, part of which is seemingly collapsed.
The newspaper says 18 people are reported to be having difficulty breathing.
It's not clear what caused the derailment, about 17 miles south and across the Delaware River from Philadelphia.
