Freezing rain advisory in effect for Greenwich until 7 p.m.

UPDATED SUNDAY 1:35 P.M. — A freezing rain advisory is in effect on Sunday, Jan. 5, for Greenwich and the rest of southern Connecticut. The advisory was initially in place until 1 p.m. but it has been extended until 7 p.m. on Sunday night.

A freezing rain drizzle began falling in the area around 10 Sunday morning. While it looks like a regular drizzle, there are reports of frozen roads in southwestern Connecticut. This has left roads in Greenwich very slippery for both drivers and pedestrians. Many have reported even having trouble walking down their driveways. People should proceed with caution as the ice is extremely difficult to see and is covering all surfaces.

“A glaze of ice will make travel treacherous, especially on untreated and elevated surfaces,” according to the National Weather Service’s freezing rain advisory.

The light freezing drizzle and rain is expected to turn over to all rain by early afternoon.
