When is the cold front coming and exactly *how cold* will it be?  

Thanks to an incoming arctic cold front, bitter cold temperatures are expected across most of the state, starting Wednesday night through Friday morning. Strong winds will create dangerously low temperatures for the Denver metro area, the Front Range and Eastern Plains.

Along the Front Range, wind chill (how people feel when they go outside) is predicted to drop to minus 30 degrees, according to the National Weather Service’s Boulder office. The forecast high in Denver is minus 5 degrees Thursday.
