A Winter Weather Advisory was issued earlier when the freezing drizzle was falling. The advisory will remain in effect through the morning commute for lingering icy spots, although little if any additional icing is expected.
Bridges, overpasses, and sidewalks will be the most likely locations to have icy patches.
In Lexington, city and state highway department crews are out treating hills and bridges for slick spots. Please use caution on your commute, give yourself extra time and slow down

Several accidents have been reported on area roadways early this morning in the Blue Grass, including the Lexington metropolitan area. These arose from light freezing drizzle that fell overnight. It appears that most of the freezing drizzle has transitioned to scattered flurries, and this should continue to be the case going forward through today.
