Falling Temperatures Keep Georgia Roads Slick

ATLANTA Icy roads made worse by low temperatures greeted
commuters in north Georgia and metro Atlanta, and the National
Weather Service predicts it will get colder.

NWS meteorologist Nate Mayes said highs would only reach the upper 20s Wednesday afternoon, but sunlight and winds should combine to clear away some of the snow and ice from roads.

Lows Wednesday and Thursday nights are forecast in the mid-teens, with highs in the low 30s on Thursday.

Mayes says highs in metro Atlanta should reach the 50s by the
weekend.

Georgia Department of Transportation crews worked through the night to clear highways of ice, but accidents closed portions of Interstates 20 and 285 and Georgia 400.
