DENVER – Good morning! Here’s what you need to know today, Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017.

1. First Alert Action Day continues 
A storm system moves into the area, producing colder air and light snow. This will not be a major storm, probably 3 to 6 inches in the mountains and 1 to 2 inches for Denver and the I-25 corridor, with 2 to 4 inches in the foothills. DIA will get an inch or less, but it should be enough to stop the streak of dry days.

2. Net neutrality vote Thursday
The Federal Communications Commission plans to vote on sweeping net-neutrality rules Thursday. The proposal would not only roll back restrictions that keep broadband providers like Comcast, Verizon and AT&T from blocking or collecting tolls from services they don't like, it would bar states from imposing their own rules.

3. I-25 reconstruction project comes to an end
Colorado Department of Transportation and elected officials will gather for a ribbon cutting ceremony as the Interstate 25 and Arapahoe Road Interchange Reconstruction project comes to a close.

4. Aurora, Douglas County hold drill at VA hospital
Law enforcement from Aurora and Douglas County will be conducting training on the Denver VA hospital. They will be using a small building not connected to the main hospital and training will not disrupt any services. 

5. Take a trip down Colfax memory lane
The Aurora History Museum's "US Route 40 and the American Road Trip" opens today. The art exhibit will take you back to the heyday of Route 40, when the glittering neon signs and sparkling pools in Aurora welcomed tourists heading toward the Rocky Mountains.
