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.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- An Alaska fishing community inundated by snow is getting help from the National Guard and now is asking for help from shovel manufacturers.
A spokesman for the city of Cordova says the community is looking for sturdy snow shovels and snow scoops as it braces for another storm.
Nearly 15 feet of snow has dumped on the community of 2,200 about 150 miles southeast of Anchorage, and a blizzard warning was in effect Tuesday.
City spokesman Allen Marquette says if any state should have stockpiles of shovels, it should be Alaska. But he says the city has contacted stores in Anchorage, Fairbanks and other cities and has not been able to find a stash.
The city is working with a manufacturer to bring shovels north from another state.
