Winter Weather Moving Through Deep South

Emergency management workers in Atlanta are hunkered down, waiting to spring into action as rain - along with temperatures - are falling, potentially leading to "catastrophic" ice conditions forecast to hit the region.

And in north Georgia, snow is falling early Wednesday.

The area dodged the storm's first punch Tuesday, but forecasters warn that the second punch will likely bring a thick layer of ice and heavy winds that could knock out power to thousands for days.

Elected leaders and emergency management officials began warning people to stay off the roads, especially after two inches of snowfall caused an icy gridlock two weeks ago that left thousands stranded in their vehicles overnight. It appears many in the region obliged as the roads of metro Atlanta were uncharacteristically unclogged Tuesday.
