WTIK-Atlanta

School and Business Closings/Delays

According to : WXIA Atlanta-11 alive 

ATLANTA — Many accidents have been reported across areas primarily to the north of Interstate 20 as roadways ice over this evening.

Police agencies in all major jurisdictions are reporting dozens of accidents, but no major injuries at this point. Portions of many highways have been closed due to icing or accidents, including I-285 ramps at Spaghetti Junction in DeKalb County and at the Cobb Cloverleaf on the northwest side of Atlanta.

Motorists are advised to stay off the roads if at all possible.

The Winter Weather Advisory issued Wednesday afternoon for the northern counties has been extended southward into Metro Atlanta, and is in effect through 7 a.m. Thursday.

In addition to the previously named counties of Dade, Walker, Catoosa, Whitfield, Murray, Fannin, Gilmer, Union, Towns, Chattooga, Gordon, Pickens, Dawson, Lumpkin, White, Floyd, Bartow, Cherokee and Polk — the weather advisory includes Forsyth, Hall, Banks, Jackson, Paulding, Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Barrow, Haralson, Carroll, and Douglas counties.

Abundant moisture in the atmosphere is expected to overrun colder temperatures near the surface, and bring the threat of freezing rain or sleet to parts of the area late Wednesday afternoon and overnight.

The biggest threat is north of a line running from Carrollton to Atlanta to Gainesville.

Patchy areas of ice are possible, especially on overpasses and other elevated surfaces. Ice has been reported on overpasses in many areas around Metro Atlanta, most notably along Interstate 75 in Fulton, Cobb and Cherokee counties.

A gradual warmup is expected from the southwest later Wednesday night, which should bring an end to the wintry threat as the precipitation changes over to all rain.

Across much of the rest of North Georgia and Metro Atlanta, areas of light rain or freezing precipitation are possible through the remainder of Wednesday afternoon and evening, as temperatures hover around the freezing mark. Later Wednesday night, temperatures are expected to move above freezing, turning everything that falls to rain.

Rainfall amounts of one quarter to one half inch can be expected on Thursday through Thursday night.

AirTran Airways and Delta Air Lines both issued statements Wednesday afternoon saying that fees would be suspended for flight changes in the Southeast as a result of the wintry weather on Wednesday and Thursday.

According to the FAA, flights into and out of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport were being delayed an average of about an hour (as of 6 p.m.) due to the weather conditions across the eastern half of the nation. Travelers are advised to check with their carrier before heading to the airport.

Travel information is available on 11Alive.com’s Travel page.

As of 10 p.m., AirTran officials said they had cancelled 31 flights into and out of Hartsfield-Jackson as a result of Wednesday afternoon’s weather. According to AirTran’s Christopher White, the carrier expects to get back to normal operations by Thursday morning.
