...Some slick spots on roadways possible through mid morning across much of northwest Georgia...

Although precipitation has ended across northwest Georgia...there is some residual moisture on the roadways..especially on the wind sheltered side of the higher elevations. This...combined with temperatures below freezing...will allow for some of this to freeze on roadways...causing patchy ice on roads and elevated surfaces. Temperatures are expected to rise above freezing around 9am Tuesday morning.

For those that travel through Tuesday morning...use caution and slow down. Leave extra time to reach your destination.
