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 health officials are investigating a new virus that has sickened hundreds of people along the Front Range.
The virus causes symptoms strikingly similar to West Nile virus, including a rash. Other symptoms include headache, muscle soreness
and low-grade fever, all of which can be West Nile symptoms.
Health officials say most cases of the new virus are mild, but it can cause viral meningitis. That condition attacks spinal tissue.
Doctor Adrienne LeBailly of the Larimer County Health Department is working with state officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to identify the virus. The virus is not yet considered a public health threat.
Eight samples taken from patients were sent to the CDC this week.
