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.
The fire department at Peterson Air Force Base will be conducting fire training exercises on Friday.
The training is happening on the west side side of the base near Airport and Powers.
People driving on Powers, or who live near the airport, should not be alarmed if they see smoke or fire in the area.
This goal is to make sure emergency responders are prepared to handle emergencies on base and at the airport.
Peterson firefighters are main response team that handles all aircraft and civilian airport emergencies.
