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...
Arab diplomats say the Palestinian foreign minister has accepted an Arab proposal for a peace conference to resolve the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The diplomats say Foreign Minister Mahmoud Zahar endorsed a statement by Arab foreign ministers calling for the peace conference during a meeting in Cairo.
The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.
Earlier, Arab countries decided to lift the financial blockade on Palestinians. The move was in response to yesterday's US veto of a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel's military offensive in the Gaza Strip.
Eleven Arab foreign ministers and other senior officials and diplomats attended today's meeting at the Cairo headquarters of the Arab League.
