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.

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.
