Warmer temperatures on the way

After a mix of wintry precipitation and frigid temperatures over the weekend, temperatures will be warming up this week.

Still icy in spots this AM! If it looks wet, assume it’s icy. Many areas below freezing thru 10am. @GoodDayAtlanta pic.twitter.com/tgi0kj1I9D

Despite trending warmer Monday, it will still be much colder than normal with temperatures in the 20s Monday morning and the threat of black ice. Areas that saw snow/sleet/ice accumulations Friday night and have been sheltered from sunshine over the weekend, will be icy this morning.
