Special Statement – Black Ice

... Black ice and slick spots are possible on roadways early Tuesday
morning...  

Areas of rain will push across the region through tonight... 
resulting in widespread wet surfaces. Temperatures could dip to
freezing before sunrise for many areas...  generally along and north
of a LaGrange to Athens line. This will result in patches of black
ice... especially on bridges and overpasses between 5 am and 10 am
Tuesday morning. This includes the Atlanta Metro area.

In addition to the black ice threat... a brief mix of rain with sleet
and snow... or a brief period of freezing rain is also possible just
before the rain ends early Tuesday morning. Little or no
accumulations are expected at this time.

Temperatures are expected to warm above freezing between 9 am and 
10 am Tuesday morning... greatly diminishing the black ice threat
across the area by mid to late Tuesday morning.

Motorists are urged to slow down and use extra caution during their 
Tuesday morning commute. Be alert for isolated slick spots... 
especially on bridges and overpasses through mid to late Tuesday
morning.
