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.

Wintry weather is suspected of being partly to blame for a 60-to-70-vehicle crash that shut down a portion of Interstate 25 in southern Colorado this morning.
No one was killed, but a handful of people were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries.
The crash occurred between Colorado Springs and Pueblo, near Young Hollow and Pinon. That forced authorities to close a four-mile stretch of I-25 in both directions.
Snow was falling in the area at the time.
Colorado Department of Transportation spokesman Paul Peterson says it's not clear exactly how the chain-reaction crash began, but says there's a strong possibility weather was a factor -- with slippery roadways having been reported.
Dozens of cars, trucks and semis had to be towed away.
All southbound and northbound lanes of I-25 were back open by about 12:45 this afternoon.
