Denver — A Denver7 Weather Action Day continues for a bitter cold and icy morning. Wind chills have dropped to around zero across the Denver metro area and we are in for a very slow warm up.
It was not been a major storm, but we saw about 2 to 5 inches of snow in the mountains and 1 to 3 inches over the metro area. There’s plenty of snow on the roads this morning, so be prepared for an icy and cold drive.
