Although we are still tracking some light snow and icy/snow covered roads, the biggest concern for the morning will be the frigid temperatures. We are starting off with temperatures a few degrees above/below zero. Due to a breezy wind this morning, our wind chill, or what it "feels" like is well below zero. Please bundle up with numerous layers as you head out this morning. You will likely need to keep all the layers on hand throughout the day as highs reach the teens and low 20s with lingering flurries possible.

Colorado is just one of two states where stealing someone's financial information isn't a felony.
But state lawmakers are considering changing the law and giving consumers a tool to prevent themselves from becoming victims.
The Senate gave initial backing today to allowing people to put freezes on their credit reports, barring credit agencies from giving out information about them. If agencies gave out information anyway, they would have to notify that person, who could sue the agency if the information was used by an identity thief.
Under the bill, a person would be able to lift the freeze in order to allow for a legitimate check if they're making a purchase like a car or a house.
Lawmakers also have proposed making identity theft a felony, a move that failed last year because the state didn't have enough money to imprison all the people expected to break the law.
That same issue could doom the measure again.
