...Patchy Black Ice Possible This Morning...
...Dense Fog Impacting Travel Early This Morning...

Spotty drizzle and lingering moisture from past rains could have
frozen on some area roadways, leading to the formation of black
ice. This will especially be true for secondary and untreated
roads, and in sheltered valleys, rock cuts, and holler locations.
Spotty icy patches on the roads could impact the morning commute.
Drivers should use caution this morning and allow extra time to
reach your destination.

In addition, lingering moisture from past rains has combined with
light winds and cold surface temperatures to produce widespread
dense fog across much of eastern Kentucky. Visibilities are
generally a quarter of a mile or less in most locations. Again,
drivers should use caution as there may be sudden changes in
driving conditions and visibilities.
