A winter storm that moved in from the south is bringing snow and bitterly cold temperatures to southern Colorado and the Front Range.
Temperatures were dropping across the state Wednesday, with readings of just 3 degrees in parts of the high country. Out on the Eastern Plains, the National Weather Service says the wind is expected to make if feel less than 10 degrees. In northwestern Colorado, wind chills of up to 24 degrees below zero are forecast.
The cold shouldn't last long. Along the Front Range, forecasters say to expect highs in the 50s for Christmas weekend.
A storm that moved into the state last night left up to 12 inches of snow in the Sangre de Cristo mountains in southern Colorado. There were also reports of up to 8 inches in the foothills west of Denver.
