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...
Higher humidities were helping firefighters keep the fire from
spreading. It is now 25 percent contained.
Residents of the Little Valley Subdivision are being allowed to
return home this morning while those living in the Big Elk Meadows
subdivision will probably be allowed to return home later today.
Electricity in the area is out and Xcel could not guarantee it
would be back by the evening.
The fire is burning in mostly steep, inaccessible terrain --
making it too dangerous to put ground crews in most areas. Fire
commanders are relying on water and retardant drops from two air
tankers and seven helicopters.
