TODAY’S SNAPSHOT

Silver Cliff & Custer County Government Offices Closed in Observance of MLK Day.

Have you ever wanted my job?

Well, now’s your chance! 

I’ve been offered a full-time position with the company, SimpleTiger. They are an SEO & Content Marketing Agency. I’m excited for the new opportunity and of course, sad to be leaving you all. The job as news director for KLZR couldn’t have come at a more perfect time for me last year. I’ve learned so much through providing pertinent information for our readers, and will take all the lessons with me into this next chapter. If you’re interested in carrying out my duties, I strongly encourage you to apply. 

Of course, if you have any questions, feel free to reach out. I look forward to reading all of the applications and helping out with the process of hiring the next KLZR News Director!

TODAY

Mostly sunny. Highs in the mid 30s to lower 40s. Southwest winds 10 to 20 mph with gusts to around 40 mph.

TONIGHT

Mostly cloudy. A 40 percent chance of snow showers after midnight. Lows in the teens. Southwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK

Today through Sunday: Two Pacific weather systems are expected to impact the region during this period. The first system will move across the area during the Tuesday and Wednesday time period. Snow, likely heavy, will affect the mountains Tuesday, and then move across the plains Wednesday. Accumulating snow will be possible over the plains on Wednesday. Areas of blowing snow could occur over the parts of the plains Wednesday. On Friday, another system will affect the region. This system is expected to be colder, and the potential for snow with this system is higher. The best chance of snow will be across the I-25 corridor, especially from Pueblo south to the New Mexico border.
