Stormy Weather

Published by at 8:05 pm under General Information

Rangeland fire outbreaks are reported north of us tonight around Ft. Carson and east of there toward Ordway.  Reports say people are being evacuated there and several buildings are threatened. High winds and dry conditions are limiting the ability to control the fires until weather pattern changes tomorrow.   

Last week’s unsettled weather produced just a trace of snow down in La Veta but over 10 inches above Cuchara.  After a beautiful Sunday and Monday, this afternoon’s brisk winds predict another cool front coming thru Wednesday afternoon.  Good chance of rain showers and snow-flurries again.  We do welcome the moisture to prepare for the summer and to prevent spring grass fires.
