A small area of very light freezing drizzle is moving southeast over central Kentucky. The freezing drizzle or mist actually reaching the ground will be patchy in nature, but could result in a very thin glaze of ice. This could result in some slick spots given current temperatures are well below freezing. But any patchy freezing drizzle will be brief, and impacts are not expected to be widespread.
Temperatures are expected to remain at or below freezing with significant cloud cover continuing through the weekend, so any thawing of ice on streets will be minimal.
Crews from the Divisions of Streets and Roads and Water Quality treated roads overnight and will continue throughout the morning.
Motorists should use caution while making their commutes to work and be alert for icy spots on previously treated roadways, especially neighborhood and side streets. Drivers should remember that bridges, ramps and parking lots can be slick when other areas are not. Drivers are reminded to allow extra time for stopping and to keep a safe distance between other cars to avoid possible collisions.
From 10 p.m. Thursday to 5 a.m. Friday, Lexington Police responded to 4 non-injury collisions and nine traffic hazards.
