Moore County has the most by far with more than 6,364 outages, accounting for more than 60% of all outages in the state.

In the Piedmont Triad, the number of outages has significantly dropped from where it was Sunday night. While at one point in the evening Forsyth County had over 2,300 and Guilford County had more than 1,400, both counties had fewer than 100 outages by the morning.

Despite the improvement in outages, crews were still working to de-ice the roads. Anyone who must be on the roads should drive with caution.

Temperatures are expected to reach 37 degrees Monday, which may help the Department of Transportation clear the way, but temperatures are then expected to plummet to 19 degrees overnight which could mean icy roads Tuesday morning.

The Winter Weather Advisory ended at 9 a.m. Monday morning.
