Atlanta mayor warns residents to stay off the roads

Atlanta, GA (CNN) – People in the Atlanta area are getting ready for a fresh round of sleet and snow.

It comes just two weeks after less than three inches of snow paralyzed the metro area.

On Tuesday, Atlanta's mayor warned people to stay off the roads.

Mayor Kasim Reed said, “The
message I really want to share is, as of midnight tonight, wherever you
are, you need to plan on staying there for a while. The bottom line is
all of the information we have right now suggests that we are facing an
icing event that is very unusual for the metropolitan region and the
state of Georgia.”

Forecasters worry the icy buildup could lead to downed trees and power lines.
