Areas of fog and freezing drizzle are expected overnight into Wednesday morning in parts of the metro area, pedestrians and drivers should take caution and be aware of the potentially slippery weather.
“Watch that first step out the door Wednesday morning — it could be a slick one,” the National Weather Service said in a hazardous weather outlook.
Fog and freezing drizzle are in the weather forecast for the plains, along the Interstate 25 corridor and the Front Range foothills, according to the weather service. Sidewalks, roads and driveways will likely be slick in widespread areas, and people are urged to take caution and allow for extra time to arrive safely at destinations on Wednesday. Drivers are urged to slow down and allow for plenty of distance between vehicles.
In Denver, areas of fog are expected after 7 p.m. Tuesday, and a patchy, freezing drizzle will start after 11 p.m., according to the weather service. Skies will be cloudy, and the low temperature will be around 26 degrees.
The freezing drizzle and fog will stick around in the city until about 11 a.m. Wednesday, the weather service said. Skies will be cloudy and the high temperature will be near 37 degrees.
⚠️Slick roads and sidewalks may develop again tonight and tomorrow AM as areas of light freezing drizzle develop and temperatures drop below freezing. Greatest risk in and near foothills, near WY border, and Lincoln County. Use caution if freezing drizzle is observed. #COwx pic.twitter.com/8NvEjgNf9z
