ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal has expanded a state of emergency to include 31 additional counties as the region braces for another round of snow, ice and frigid temperatures.

Deal added counties stretching from northwest Georgia to the state’s border with South Carolina Monday afternoon. The state of emergency now covers 45 counties throughout Georgia and Deal says he expects to expand the declaration to additional counties as conditions warrant.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather watch until Tuesday evening for northern parts of Georgia and the same watch from Tuesday evening through Thursday for the metro Atlanta area.

Forecasters are expecting rain in north Georgia to change to a mix of snow and sleet Monday night. The storm is expected to leave the area Thursday morning.
