DENVER (AP) - Temperatures have dropped below zero across the state, the coldest morning of the year so far in Northern Colorado, and winds are making it feel even colder.
Wind chill warnings and advisories were in effect for Wednesday morning in the Denver area as well as parts of the eastern plains and high country.
The National Weather Service said wind chills reached around minus 50 overnight on Berthoud and Loveland Passes.
It was minus 7 in Denver just before sunrise but the wind chill made it feel more like minus 32.
The National Weather Service says wind gusts up to 60 MPH can be expected above Timberline along the Front Range.
Up to 6 inches of new show is forecast for parts of the high country.
