DENVER — Frigid temperatures made for a slow afternoon commute in Denver on Thursday.
Around 5 p.m., temps hovered around 29 degrees downtown.
On Interstate 25 near 20th Street, vehicles were going especially slow. While the snowfall wasn’t too dramatic, the cold weather made for some slick spots on city streets and major roadways.
Employees who had to work outdoors in the cold said it was the sort of day you’d want to be wearing extra layers.
“You’ve just got to get warm, get moving, get your blood flowing,” said Frank Hill, a construction worker helping with a project near Coors Field.
Temperatures are expected to rise slightly on Friday to about 41 degrees. Highs in the 50s are forecast for the weekend.
