Roads and bridges clear, Winter Weather Advisory cancelled
No ice accumulation on southwest Georgia roads or bridges had been reported as of 5:30 a.m. today and the National Weather Service cancelled the winter weather advisory for the area.
The National Weather Service in Tallahassee, Fla., reports there is a slight chance that some areas of southwest Georgia could still see sleet early this morning, but no accumulation is expected.
The National Weather Service had expected the winter storm impact to be minimal locally, but freezing temperatures were forecast to move into some area counties beginning late Wednesday night. Southwest Georgia DOT crews were on standby overnight and several pieces of snow/ice removal equipment were relocated to counties north of Tifton in preparation for possible hazardous conditions. A sufficient supply of a salt and rock mixture used to treat icy surfaces was available throughout the southwest Georgia district of 32 counties.
