Light snow/rain continue to develop along northern El Paso County, as well as wind picking up in this location. This trend will continue to extend to the south throughout the afternoon hours. Light snow accumulations and poor visibility will be possible for a time this afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Blowing dust will be mostly likely on the Eastern Plains, where a Blowing Dust Advisory is in effect. Bottom-line, your Tuesday will feel (and look) a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...

His survivors include his wife, Tammie, and six children. His funeral will be held Feb. 7 in Otsego, Mich.
