Georgia Coast is Mostly Clear; Some Freezing Rain Expected

Coastal Georgia is largely escaping the winter storm that has pummeled much of northern and central Georgia.

But slick roads could remain a danger through early Friday, forecasters say.

Ron Morales is a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Charleston, S.C. He says the farther inland you go, the more freezing rain you’ll see.

“We’re kind of flirting with freezing temperatures,” he says. “But the elevated surfaces - overpasses and any sort of bridges - those are always the most susceptible to freezing.”

Morales says areas on the western edge of Savannah could see a small amount of ice accumulation through Thursday morning.

Savannah-Chatham County Public schools will have a delayed start Thursday.

Statesboro has received light freezing rain and ice. Georgia Southern University will remain closed for a second day Thursday.
