WHEN:           Monday night and Tuesday.                                                               

 WHERE:         South Central Georgia

 WHAT:           Sleet, freezing rain and sustained temperatures below freezing could cause extremely hazardous driving conditions throughout                                    Georgia. Dangerous icing is possible across the entire advisory area.

Georgia DOT has marshaled all available assets from throughout the state and will respond in strength.  

Motorists are urged to slow down and leave, at least, a ten car length distance between their vehicles and the DOT trucks clearing the roadways.
