ATLANTA (AP) -- The end is near. National Weather Service forecasters are projecting that snow will end across most of Georgia by late morning, with high temperatures that could melt some of the snow and ice that's fallen.
Forecasters are calling for high temperatures of around 45 degrees in metro Atlanta on Thursday.
However, they say that any water remaining on roads Thursday night will refreeze as temperatures fall below 32 degrees. That will create black ice during the overnight hours and into Friday morning.
Winds will still be strong, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
The weather service says that as winds increase during the morning, more tree limbs and power lines could come down, causing more power outages.
