Denver weather: Freezing drizzle tonight to make an icy Wednesday morning

Denver could be very slick by this time Wednesday as a weak storm system will move in tonight, bringing a winter weather mix.

According to the National Weather Service in Boulder, Denver will experience an enjoyable Tuesday with a high of 56 degrees under partly cloudy skies. Winds could gust to 16 mph.

The weather will begin to turn Tuesday night into Wednesday morning as patchy freezing drizzle could begin around 2 a.m. The mostly cloudy evening will drop to 23 degrees. The metro area could be covered with a light glaze of ice by Wednesday’s sunrise.

Areas of freezing drizzle and light snow are expected Wednesday across the Front Range, with a light glaze of ice possible. The freezing drizzle, possibly mixed with snow, should mainly occur after 11 a.m. The high will only reach 30 degrees. There’s a 50% chance of precipitation, but any snow amounts should total less than an inch. The wintery mix will wrap up before midnight as the nighttime temperature falls to 16 degrees.

Thursday will be a calm weather day with a sunny high of 39 degrees.

Another weak storm system arrives Friday into Saturday with a 40% chance of light snow.

Then temperatures should warm into the 50s again later in the weekend and next week.
