Under .10 of an inch will build up in more southern areas including southern Dearborn and Ripley counties, Ohio, Switzerland, Boone and Gallatin counties.
The weather service warns that light amounts of icing will cause some roads and sidewalks to become slippery. Use caution when outdoors as areas that look wet may be icy. Use caution when driving on ice-covered roads.
