A significant and hazardous winter storm will put down everything from rain to sleet to freezing rain and snow across the Commonwealth over the next 48 hours.

Our primary threat is ice accumulation from freezing rain. We'll see light, mixed precipitation Wednesday morning that could lead to a slick commute. But after a late morning/early afternoon lull, conditions will deteriorate as moisture ramps up Wednesday evening and cold air stays entrenched at the surface overnight.

Ice totals in the Bluegrass will range from 0.1" to 0.3." The axis of heaviest precipitation and accumulated ice potential has shifted north slightly, but we are still looking at a band of around 0.5" to 0.75" south of I-64.

This will lead to dangerous driving and potential power outages. An ice storm warning is in effect through Thursday evening. A winter weather advisory is in effect for northern counties where sleet and snow will reduce the ice threat.
