ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta officials are closely monitoring current weather forecasts, which predict a combination of precipitation and falling temperatures will bring light snow to north and west-central Georgia by early morning.
The city of Atlanta says it's prepared for inclement weather that may cause slick or hazardous conditions.
If there is freezing precipitation, officials say city of Atlanta crews will pre-treat priority bridges and stage equipment for any necessary response.
The city says it plans to have 35 sand spreaders, 44 snow plows, and 450 tons of salt/sand mixture available for use to treat the city's 200 miles of priority roadways including 40 bridges, six hospitals, and 16 police precincts.
