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...
Residents evacuated by the Mason Fire were able to wake up in their own homes Thursday morning. Evacuation orders were lifted Wednesday afternoon, and some five-thousand people were allowed to return home.
The fire, which has burned more than 12,000 acres, is 60-percent contained, but officials felt it was safe for residents to return home.
Crews are still working to get the fire 100-percent contained, and expect that to happen by Saturday.
No injuries have been reported and no homes have been lost
