The ice that bombarded Jessamine County since Tuesday won't disappear quickly.
According to Joe Ammerman of the National Weather Service, the wintry weather that has downed power lines and tree branches throughout the county should be passed. But the ice that came with it will likely remain until deep into the weekend.
Ammerman said the temperatures won't rise above freezing soon, leaving the ice and heavy snow for at least three more days.
"(The melting) is not going to occur very fast because we're not really looking at temperatures being above freezing until Sunday," he said. "You won't see ice melting until late into the weekend."
