…BLACK ICE AND A LIGHT WINTRY MIX POSSIBLE OVERNIGHT ACROSS MUCH
OF THE NORTH CAROLINA AND NORTHEAST GEORGIA MOUNTAINS…

Temperatures will fall rapidly to the freezing mark overnight as a
cold front sweeps east of the mountains. With water from the
recent rainfall lingering on area roadways, and light wintry
precipitation possible overnight along the Tennessee border
counties of the North Carolina mountains, roads may become
slippery toward daybreak.

If you must travel during the morning hours across Georgia
mountain locations from Clarkesville to Clayton and surrounding
areas, or in locations across the North Carolina mountains, use
extreme caution. Be on the lookout for black ice on roadways,
especially bridges and overpasses. Allow extra travel time and
stopping distance.
