From the Athens-Clarke County police:
Roadways, bridges, and overpasses in Athens-Clarke County are covered with ice and are very treacherous. The temperature is in the high 20’s now and is not expected to rise throughout the day. Additional perception in the form of snow, sleet, and/or freezing rain is expected through the night. Temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-20s. As ice forms on power lines and tree limbs there may be power outages.
We encourage citizens to remain at home and stay off the roadway. If you have to drive, slow down and drive cautiously. Turn your vehicle’s headlights on so others will be able to see you.
