A significant round of mixed, wintry precipitation blanketed the Commonwealth Wednesday evening, overnight and into Thursday morning.

Advisories are paring off in the northern part of the state, but freeze warnings remain in southern counties.

Current ice totals are in the 0.2"-range in the Bluegrass, but have accumulated as much as 0.5" in areas like Elizabethtown.

Power outages and downed tree limbs will remain a hazard through the day as temperatures remain around and below freezing. Watch for falling ice!

Kentucky Utilities is reporting just under 17,000 outages as of 6:50 a.m., with the south end of Lexington as the most affected area.

Roads will remain hazardous as well. Widespread moisture is winding down across the Bluegrass with lingering freezing drizzle and light snow possible. Our southeastern counties, however, will see a second wave develop mid to late morning. Watch for light freezing rain and sleet lingering into Thursday afternoon southeast.

An ice storm and winter storm warning remain in effect.
