LOWNDES, Ga. (WTXL) - As the snow is starting to melt in some south Georgia counties, officials in Lowndes County want to remind folks, the ice can still pose a threat overnight.

Lowndes County official, Paige Dukes, says people should be on high alert when traveling, the freezing temperatures will turn the melting snow into ice.

Dukes says if you have to be on the roads, to drive slowly and cautiously.

Lowndes County Emergency Management will be out early tomorrow monitoring the conditions of the road.

Folks are encouraged to check the conditions before hitting to the road.
