Coast Not Quite Clear - Watch for Black Ice

ATLANTA -- Mother Nature gave Metro Atlantans a bit of a break Friday, with the longest stretch of above-freezing temperatures since Sunday's storm. 

Temperatures will get back above freezing by midday Saturday, allowing road conditions to continue to improve. Daytime temps will go well into the 40s for Saturday and Sunday, while lows Saturday night will only briefly drop below freezing.

The Georgia Department of Transportation says most main roads and highways in North Georgia are now passable, but icy patches remain, particularly on side streets and in neighborhoods. To report hazardous road conditions or traffic signal problems within the City of Atlanta, call 404-546-2615 or 404-853-3200.

    Closings: Roads, Businesses and Schools

After a full week off from school, students in at least two school districts -- Fannin and Gilmer counties -- will head back to class Monday, even though it was previously scheduled off for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Cherokee County Schools will convert two previously scheduled furlough days, March 17 and 18, into regular school days. Other school districts are still deciding how to make up lost snow days

The conditions this week brought out the best of Atlanta. We weathered it out together. Enjoy your weekend. You've earned it.
