Temps near 30 below zero in northwest Colorado

DENVER — A bitter cold snap has dropped temperatures to near 30 degrees below zero in northwestern Colorado, while the rest of the state is struggling with freezing weather, ice and snow.

National Weather Service meteorologist Matthew Aleksa said Thursday the temperature in Meeker hit 29 below zero just before sunrise, and Craig was at minus 27 degrees.

Some mountain areas are reporting up to a foot of snow. The cold air mass over Colorado is expected to continue into Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.

The Colorado Department of Transportation on Thursday reported no major highway closures so far.
