DENVER --Dangerous cold with wind chills well below zero were evident all over metro Denver and northeastern Colorado late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
The cold weather is here -- and it's going to stick around the Front Range for the next few days.
The high of 16 in Denver Tuesday was the coldest high temperature for November 11 in the city. The low Tuesday night was going to drop to near zero degrees. The wind chill was already below zero Tuesday evening.
Snowfall Tuesday afternoon quickly stuck to highways and streets, just in time to bring the evening commute to a crawl. Denver Public Works deployed its 70 big snow plows to work all night in preparation for the Wednesday morning commute, which promised to be a long, slow one.
The snow will continue Wednesday with another 1 to 2 inches possible and the high only expected to reach about 11 degrees. Thursday morning, temperatures again will drop, with a low below zero.
Thursday will still be cold, but temperatures will rise into the 20s before a brief warmup Friday with temperatures near 40.
Temps fall back into the 30s for the weekend with more snow in the forecast.
