And here's its response:

Good morning, 

Right now in Arvada, the temperature is 34, and it's windy, with winds at 21 mph and 27-mile visibility. You'll definitely want to bundle up today as temperatures are not expected to rise much, and the wind chill is making it feel about 10 colder. 

The weather today will evolve as follows. At 1:00 PM, it's going to get a bit warmer, with temperatures reaching 38° F, though the wind will still be significant at 17 mph. By 4:00 PM, the winds will start to die down and temperatures will begin to drop. By 7:00 PM, expect partly cloudy skies, calm winds, and a temperature of 30. Overnight temperatures will continue to fall, reaching 24 by 10:00 PM, accompanied by partly cloudy skies and light winds. 

As for the rest of the week, tomorrow will be colder, with a high of only 25. Friday will be a bit warmer, with a high of 34. Be prepared for a blast of winter weather over the weekend, though, with snow expected Saturday and Sunday, and temperatures dropping to -3 at their lowest. By early next week, conditions will begin to improve again, with a slight warmup on Monday. Tuesday should be much milder, with temperatures reaching 42. 

Dress warmly, drink plenty of water, and avoid spending prolonged periods outdoors in the cold today. Have a great day, and enjoy the winter scenery.
