If you're headed outdoors today, watch out for slick roadways and sidewalks caused by freezing drizzle. The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for the Lawrence area through 6 a.m. Wednesday.
The weather service predicts periods of freezing drizzle through the nightime hours, becoming more widespread overnight. Untreated sidewalks, streets and highways will be slick and hazardous, the weather service said.
Areas of dense fog will also further deteriorate driving conditions.
Overnight the temperature will drop to 27 by early Wednesday morning, but climb to 40 by the middle of the afternoon on Wednesday, according to Tim Reith, 6News meteorologist.
Wednesday's weather will bring more freezing drizzle in the morning, then light rain in the middle of the day finally followed by sleet and light snow at night, Reith said.
The temperature will then fall to 22 by early Thursday morning. Thursday's high will reach only 25 and temperatures will fall Thursday night to a low of 10 by Friday morning.
