DANGEROUS DRIVING CONDITIONS CONTINUE ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA…

A WINTER STORM THAT TRACKED THROUGH GEORGIA SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY
DUMPED SNOW…SLEET…AND FREEZING RAIN ACROSS THE STATE. WITH THE
COLD TEMPERATURES AND LOW LEVEL MOISTURE IN PLACE…FREEZING
DRIZZLE AND LIGHT SNOW PERSISTED THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING.
THERE IS STILL A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR LIGHT SNOW TO CONTINUE INTO
TONIGHT ACROSS EXTREME NORTH GEORGIA…AND ACCUMULATIONS…IF
ANY…WILL BE LIGHT. DRIVING CONDITIONS WILL REMAIN TREACHEROUS
ACROSS NORTH AND MUCH OF CENTRAL GEORGIA THROUGH WEDNESDAY.

NORTH GEORGIA STILL HAS SNOW…SLEET AND ICE ON THE GROUND. WITH
TEMPERATURES REMAINING BELOW FREEZING ACROSS THE AREA…THIS WILL
ALLOW FOR ANY MOISTURE ON THE SIDEWALKS AND ROADWAYS TO FREEZE AND
REMAIN FROZEN. TEMPERATURES ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA WILL STRUGGLE TO
REACH ABOVE FREEZING THROUGH THURSDAY AND THIS WILL PROVIDE LITTLE
CHANCE FOR THE ICE TO MELT AND CONDITIONS TO IMPROVE.

ALTHOUGH THE BEST OPTION IS NOT TO DRIVE IN THESE HAZARDOUS
CONDITIONS…USE EXTREME CAUTION IF YOU MUST TRAVEL. SLOW DOWN AND
LEAVE EXTRA TIME TO REACH YOUR DESTINATION.
