DENVER — The snow that began early Tuesday morning finally came to an end Wednesday morning but it will remain cold with highs only expected to get into the 20s.
A new record low temperature of 3° was set and another low temperature record could be set Thursday.
All that snow and the bitter cold temperatures prompted many school districts including Denver, Aurora and Cherry Creek to close on Wednesday. Others had delayed starts.
As road conditions and visibility continue to worsen, numerous major road closures have been reported due to crashes and adverse conditions.
- Westbound I-70 at Vail Pass Summit closed due to a crash
Much of the state is under a winter weather advisory or winter storm warning through Wednesday morning.
Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas and El Paso counties are included in the winter storm warning; see the full list here.

Shovel that snow

Denver has the following tips for snow shoveling:
- Push (do not lift) the snow with a snow shovel.
- Shovel snow into your yard to avoid blocking a bike or travel lane. This will also avoid the snowplow from pushing snow back on your sidewalk.
- Be mindful of neighbors and those you could help if they are unable to shovel or snow-blow, etc.
