Freezing drizzle causes slick roads overnight: Pinpoint Weather Alert Day

DENVER -- It has been a cold, cloudy and slick day on the Front Range. While some areas saw snowfall in the mountains and on the Northern Front Range, the rest of the lower elevations had freezing drizzle. A Pinpoint Weather Alert Day has been issued due to the dangerous travel conditions.

On Saturday night, a United jet skidded off a taxiway at DIA. No one was injured.

Freezing drizzle is light rain that freezes on contact with the surface. Saturday's freezing drizzle has created icy roads and sidewalks making travel tough across eastern Colorado.

More light snowfall and freezing drizzle is possible overnight. Icy roads will be the biggest weather impact during the next 12 hours.

Temperatures will drop down to the teens overnight. Bundle up if you have Sunday morning plans and allow extra time for travel due to icy roads. Fog will be another weather impact for Sunday morning.

Sunshine will move back in by midday Sunday and will help melt away all of the ice with high temperatures around 46 degrees.

The rest of Thanksgiving week looks dry and warmer. Our next storm system will move in next weekend, but it is still too far out to know details at this time. The Pinpoint Weather Team will keep you updated.
