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.

Governor Owens is authorizing 5.8 million dollars in federal funds to cover potential wildland firefighting costs in Colorado.
The funds will come from the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003.
Owens made the announcement this morning at Centennial Airport during an annual briefing on firefighting efforts.
The cost of the Picnic Rock wildfire west of Fort Collins rose to two-point-eight million dollars yesterday. An Emergency Fire
Fund set up to help battle such blazes had only 335-thousanddollars in it.
The fire has grown to 89-hundred acres, but is estimated to be 95 percent contained.
Full containment is expected sometime today.
