With lingering freezing drizzle, parts of central Georgia are now under a freezing rain advisory for Monday night.
The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory, which is in effect until 1 a.m. Tuesday for much of north and central Georgia, generally south of a line from Summerville through Jasper to homer. The winter storm warning has been cancelled.
Areas of freezing rain or drizzle continue this evening over most of north Georgia and portions of central Georgia. The precipitation was moving to the northeast at 25 mph. The winter precipitation will end this evening. Very little if any additional ice accumulation is expected.
This major winter storm has made travel difficult or impossible across much of north and portions of central Georgia. Travel difficulties will linger through Tuesday morning as temperatures are generally expected to remain near or below freezing. In addition, ice accumulation on trees and power lines may cause power outages.
A freezing rain advisory means that periods of freezing rain or freezing drizzle will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads. Slow down and use caution while driving.
