Colorado weather: Waves of fog, snow make for slick commutes Friday

A combination of fog and light snow could make for slick conditions on the road Friday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

Waves of light snow are expected to sweep over most of Colorado Friday, but not much accumulation is expected, according to NWS meteorologists.

The winter weather will wind down over the plains and urban corridor Friday afternoon, with snow showers continuing in the front range and foothills through Friday evening, according to NWS meteorologists.

Snow-covered roads are possible along I-76 during Friday’s morning commute.

Between 3 and 8 inches of snow accumulation is estimated for higher elevations, and 0 to 2 inches of snow are projected for the Denver area, according to snowfall data from NWS.

Snow showers in lower elevations will likely result in little to no accumulation of snow on roadways, but up to an inch of snow on grassy surfaces is expected, according to a hazardous weather alert from NWS.

Patchy fog conditions are possible along Interstate 25, Interstate 76 and Interstate 70 through 10 a.m. Friday morning, the hazardous weather alert stated.

Fog in the Denver area will likely lift around 8 a.m., but cloudy conditions will remain throughout the day, according to NWS forecasters.

The metro area can expect a frigid day with temperatures peaking at 36 degrees before dropping to 24 degrees overnight.

Warm weather will return to the metro area this weekend, with temperatures hovering in the high 50s and mid to low 60s Saturday through Monday before dropping back down into the low 30s on Tuesday, according to NWS forecasters.

The state’s next chance of snow is Wednesday night into Thursday, according to NWS forecasters.
