ATLANTA (AP) — Forecasters say light snow and black ice will be possible in higher elevations of the north Georgia mountains as a winter storm system moves toward the east coast.
In a winter weather advisory, the National Weather Service said the ice could form on roads and bridges Monday evening, as temperatures fall below freezing in the mountains.
Meanwhile, a wind advisory in effect until Monday evening covered all of north and central Georgia.
Winds from 15 to 25 mph -- with gusts of up to 35 mph -- were expected through 8 p.m. Monday.
The weather was expected to be much worse in the northeast U.S., where residents Monday were preparing for a storm that could bury communities from northern New Jersey to southern Maine in up to 2 feet of snow.
