Authorities urge drivers to take it slow Friday morning with freezing drizzle, fog

MADISON, Wis. — Freezing drizzle and fog overnight is leading to some patchy slippery spots on southern Wisconsin roads that may affect the morning commute.

Crews across the area have been putting down salt overnight, but authorities including the Sun Prairie police department are asking people to drive carefully on their way to work and school Friday morning.


Dane County dispatch says a handful of slideoffs were reported overnight.

Meteorologist Chris Reece says the fog and drizzle that’s freezing to the pavement is patchy, meaning not every road may be slick in the morning, but drivers should be aware some stretches of road may be more slippery than they appear.

High temperatures for Friday are expected to be in the lower 30s with flurries and freezing drizzle throughout the day.

Temperatures will rise through the weekend, with highs in the upper 30s on Saturday and the mid 40s on Sunday, approaching record highs.
