Freezing drizzle to create icy Wednesday morning commute in Denver
Snow is expected to move into the region later in the day on Wednesday
DENVER – Freezing drizzle is expected to create some difficult driving conditions during the Wednesday morning commute in the Denver area.
Temperatures will be below freezing all day in Denver, with the coldest air of the day expected before 10 a.m. local time.
Snow, sleet, freezing rain and hail: What's the difference?
With freezing drizzle expected in the region before snow moves in later in the day, that could coat local roads and highways with some ice, making travel difficult.
As a result, Winter Weather Advisories have been issued along the Interstate 25 corridor in northeastern Colorado from Fort Collins south through Denver and into Colorado Springs. Parts of the Interstate 76 and Interstate 70 corridors are also included in the advisory.
Snow will begin to move into the region on Wednesday afternoon. And while heavy accumulations aren't expected, up to an inch of snow could fall in places like Denver and Colorado Springs.
