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.

A set of pipe bombs and other explosives have been safely removed from a home in Fountain.
Neighbors were told to stay inside while a bomb squad responded to a house on the 500 block of Turf Trail Place. Authorities with Fort Carson and the Fountain Police Department requested the bomb squad after finding the explosives during an earlier search of the home Thursday evening.
A robot was deployed into the garage and removed the two pipe bombs. Authorities with Fort Carson's Criminal Investigation Division (CID) assisted the bomb squad on removing other items from inside the home.
No further information has been released at this time, and no reported arrests have been made.
