It's Not Over ... More Snow is Coming

ATLANTA  —   The nearly two-week cold snap is not over in Georgia.

Snow is expected to fall Monday night into Tuesday from the north Georgia mountains as far south as central Georgia.

The National Weather Service says people in those areas of the state can expect scattered snow showers and flurries that will start overnight and last into Tuesday morning.

The fresh batch of flurries comes after last Thursday's ice and snow storm that left a wake of icy streets, dangerous road conditions, and dozens of school, government and company closings and delays Friday.

In Atlanta Monday, temperatures had not lifted enough over the weekend to melt the ice that formed Friday over some streets in the Buckhead neighborhood.

The city of Atlanta Monday wrapped up fixing about 50 burst water mains that succumbed to freezing temperatures.

Private plumbers in north Georgia reported a spike in calls from homeowners looking for help fixing frozen and busted pipes.

But temperatures will rise as the week progresses.

The National Weather Service forecasts highs in the 40's and 50's Wednesday, with parts of south Georgia seeing temperatures in the low 60's by Thursday.
