Cold Weather Returns

By  | 

A wintry weather system has pushed its way to the Front Range, but it's more "cold" than "snow."

While it has not amounted to a lot of snow, the storm has created some trecherous driving conditions in parts of the state, especially the central mountains. Some of the ski resorts reported several inches of fresh powder.

In this area, Woodland Park and Cripple Creek each reported about 4 inches of new snow on Wednesday morning. Woodland Park RE-2 even delayed the start of classes by 2 hours, so that students could take their time ggetting to school.

The biggest factor in this storm is the cold temperatures. Highs Thursday are only expected to reach the 30s. Strong winds will also keep the wind chill temperatures unseasonably low.

In Pueblo D60, classes are cancelled for Thursday at Minnequa Elementary School due to heating system repairs. Students will return to classes on Friday.
