Roads are icy in spots that saw accumulating snow yesterday. Allow yourself plenty of extra time this morning and dress warmly, as wind chills are in the single digits and teens for many. A second disturbance will bring another round of snow showers to the Front Range this afternoon and early evening. While not as heavy as yesterday, some additional light accumulations over the higher terrain will be possible, including Teller and Northern El Paso Counties. Highs in the 30s and 40s will feel colder when factoring a blustery northwest wind. Click on the 'Weather' tab for more...
Colorado's first two human cases of West Nile virus this season are were confirmed Wednesday.
The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment says a 50-year-old man from Weld County developed West Nile fever on May 24th. The man was NOT hospitalized and is now recovering.
The second case involved a 17-year-old boy from Fort Collins who became ill on June Fifth. Lab tests completed today confirm he also had the virus. He was hospitalized briefly but is now recovering.
West Nile virus is carried by birds and transmitted by mosquitos that bite the birds and then bite humans or other animals.
Colorado is the third state in the U-S to report human cases of the virus this year.
Two cases were reported earlier this month in Kansas and three cases have been reported in South Dakota.
