Forecasters with the National Weather Service predict temperatures will remain near or below freezing through Thursday, as a storm system brought rain, freezing rain and sleet to areas just north of the U.S. Highway 84 corridor on Monday.

Several schools, colleges and universities have delayed opening for Tuesday.
