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.

11 News viewers say Fort Carson went on lockdown Wednesday afternoon, but the Mountain Post denies that ever happened.
At 5:15 p.m., Fort Carson released this statement:
"This afternoon, an individual displayed suspicious and threatening behavior during a medical appointment at Fort Carson. After statements were made that suggested the individual may be in possession of a weapon, the building supervisor took prudent measures to evacuate and report the incident to authorities. The individual was later detained without incident."
KKTV 11 News started getting calls around 3:45 p.m. from people on post saying they were put on lockdown and that MPs were telling them there was an active shooter on post.
