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 back at work in Oklahoma, searching for any more victims of a cluster of tornadoes.
The twisters ripped across the state yesterday, killing at least eight people.
All of the fatalities were in Lone Grove, where one woman was found injured but alive under an overturned mobile home. Seven of the dead were residents; a truck driver passing through the area was the eighth.
One young woman was lifted into the air as a tornado pulled the roof off a house, but her mother and others held her down.
The National Guard has been called in to help. Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry says officials will do everything they can to get storm victims the assistance they need.
