DENVER — The wind chill is making it feel as cold as 40 below in parts of the Rockies.
The actual temperature in Laramie, Wyoming was minus 24 Thursday morning although the wind chill ranged from negative 30 to 40 in the area. Denver was at minus 5 but it felt more like negative 17 with the wind.
Nearly all of Montana was reporting below-zero temperatures Thursday morning. Wind chill readings reached minus 34 in Gillette and 33 below in Butte.
It’s the coldest day yet since the remnants of an Alaskan typhoon surged in Monday. A slight but welcome warm up is ahead. The high in Denver is expected to break into the double digits and hit around 20 as a snowstorm with relatively milder air from the west moves in.
