Special Weather Statement: Icy spots, black ice possible overnight in Coweta
From Special Reports
The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a Special Weather Statement regarding possible icy conditions tonight and early Tuesday morning in Coweta County and surrounding areas.
Temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s across north and portions of central Georgia. The colder temperatures combined with moisture left on surfaces from recent precipitation will leads to slick or icy spots on roads as well as other surfaces such as porches, decks, and sidewalks Tuesday morning.
The most likely locations for black ice on roadways will be secondary or untreated roads as well as bridges and overpasses.
The threats for black ice and slick spots will diminish through the morning hours as temperatures are expected to warm through Tuesday afternoon to well above the freezing mark. Use caution and allow extra time to reach your destination if traveling late tonight and Tuesday morning.
