The sun was shining in Livermore after a frosty bitter cold night. Only a few miles south, however, the clouds and fog made for a challenging morning drive for many. But it wasn’t nearly as bad as yesterday.
On Thursday, Poudre School District and Colorado State University delayed start schedules by two hours as a result of poor road conditions and overnight temperatures lower than 10 degrees. The announcements came on the evening of Wednesday, January 17.
Road crews around Northern Colorado have been de-icing roads for several days. Conditions are starting to improve.
