Baby it’s cold outside, dangerous travel

The snow was caused by an arctic front and the full force of the polar air mass can be felt today with strong gusty winds making the wind chill factor brutal and unhealthy.

The Wind Chill Factor will be in the single digits and teens all day long, and the temperature will not go above freezing until around Noon tomorrow.

Most areas have received a coating to one inch of snow, 2 inches in spots far south-side.

Roads will remain icy and treacherous as
temperatures remain below freezing all day. If you must drive,
use extreme caution. The cold wind chills may cause frostbite with prolonged skin exposure.

Most roadways north of a LaGrange to McDonough to
Commerce line are dangerous. Roads may become slick and hazardous down to central Georgia and even parts of Southwest Georgia.

Travel today and tonight is not advised. If you must travel,
please exercise extreme caution. Slow down and allow extra time to
reach your destination.
