TODAY’S SNAPSHOT

5p Silver Cliff Planning Commission; Silver Cliff Town Hall — CANCELLED

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 cloudy with a 30 percent chance of snow. Highs in the lower 30s. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.

TONIGHT

Mostly cloudy. Lows 4 below to 5 above zero. West winds 10 to 15 mph.

HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK

Today through Monday: Snow will continue this morning for the Palmer Divide, south along the I-25 corridor, then spreading east across the Plains, remaining mainly north of Highway 50. Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are expected, with the highest totals over the Palmer Divide, and Mountain areas. Winds will also
be strong, creating areas of blowing snow over Monument Hill, south into Colorado Springs. Wind gusts 40 to 50 mph will create areas of blowing snow and hazardous travel conditions this morning. Snow will come to an end this afternoon.

The next upper storm system will move across the region bringing more snow to the Mountains Friday into Saturday. Snow will also be possible along the southern Interstate 25 corridor. Uncertainty
exists with the storm track, and more widespread snow may be possible on the Plains.
