Now that bitter cold is expected to moderate in Middle Georgia, forecasters warn of the threat of freezing drizzle and icy roads early Thursday.

The National Weather Service expects conditions could lead to black ice between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. Thursday.

The air could be above freezing when precipitation starts, but temperatures are expected to drop with an overnight low of 29 in Macon.

By noon Thursday, it should be warm enough to melt any ice.

Wednesday morning, an ambulance was called after a woman was hurt when she fell on an icy sidewalk near downtown Macon.

Water flowing down College Street froze the right lane and sidewalk near Forsyth Street.
