Snow Winding Down, for Now...

Some additional light snow will fall along and south of HWY 50 this evening. Areas closest to the mountains will pick up an additional inch or two, before it winds down later.

Friday will be a cool, but better day. Highs will end up mainly in the 30s, and lower 40s, with some sunshine.

Another storm system will bring a reinforcing shot of cold air and light snow Friday night and Saturday.. While the snow does not look significant for Colorado Springs or Pueblo, areas south of HWY 50 on the Southeast Plains will pick up some accumulating snow. Even the Palmer Divide could pick up a few inches. It will be very windy too, so blowing snow will be an issue for those that do see the snow. We'll keep you posted.

    @unknown...it's fairly obvious that you don't have kids. Thanks for the free advice (not worth much), but I'll raise my kids the way I want.

    As a parent, I hate when school cancels for weather!

    @ GRANDMA> the answer you got from "M" is the typical parent these days. the parents are not in charge, it's the kids. and everyone wants to know what's wrong with kids these days. it's the stupid ignorant parents that raise them.

    Grandma: Appreciate your comments and concern; however, you may be unaware that many children opt to not wear their coat, gloves, hat, etc. As the mother of a teenager, I often remind my child to wear warm weather gear, yet my child often chooses not to. Crazy, I know.

    I have only one concern at the present and that is when I look out my livingroom window and see many small children walking to school in this wind and snow! I know, kids have been walking to school for years; however, I see so many with only light weight coats, not knit caps on or gloves and little girls with bare legs in dresses!! There is probably no solution to the situation at hand; I just had to put it out there that parents need to see to it that their children have winter coats, gloves and hats and that they are on before they walk out their doors to school. A small note to schools; if the wind chill is 30 or below; how about a late start for these little ones to get to school?
