WELD COUNTY -- A monster snowstorm prompted Weld Re-8 to cancel classes and before- and after-school activities Tuesday.
The storm also closed the Aims Community College campus. It was expected to deposit up to a foot of snow in locations around the metro area. Gusty winds blew up to 35 knots in some places, according to the National Weather Service.
City of Fort Lupton offices are closed. Frederick, Dacono and Firestone town offices all opened mid-morning and were expected to remain open throughout the day.
