Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
The Pentagon has confirmed one of the U.S. troops killed in the war in Iraq is from Colorado. Military officials say Lance Corporal Thomas Slocum was among nine Marines killed during fighting near An Nasiriyah on Sunday.
Slocum was from Thornton, and graduated from Skyview High School. The Pentagon did not have Slocum's age.
The soldiers were killed after Iraqi soldiers approached U.S. troops as if to surrender but then attacked.
Slocum was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina.
