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...
Firefighters are continuing to work on a fire that's burning in southwestern Colorado.
The La Plata County Sheriff's Office has warned homeowners to prepare for an evacuation as a 240 to 250 acre wildfire burns near High Flume Canyon and La Posta Canyon.
That's located about 15 miles south of Durango.
Pamella Wilson, fire information officer for the San Juan Public Lands Center, says at least 40 firefighters were battling that blaze.
She says the area has seen 13 small fires over the past two days, all of them caused by lightning strikes.
At the Air Force Academy near Colorado Springs, a 360-acre fire prompted a handful of evacuations, including people and animals.
Authorities say firefighters have been able to contain the grass-fed blaze.
The cause of that fire is under investigation.
