ATLANTA (AP) - Snow cover in north Georgia has led to very cold early morning temperatures Thursday — a crucial day when authorities are hoping above-freezing temperatures will melt some ice and snow from slick highways.

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency’s weather outlook for Thursday says temperatures are expected to rise above freezing between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday in the Atlanta area. The National Weather Service called for highs Thursday around 38 degrees in Atlanta.

However, it was just 25 degrees at Atlanta’s airport around 10 a.m. Thursday — casting doubt on those forecasts.

It was even colder in northern parts of the metro region around 9 a.m.: 15 degrees in Cartersville; and 21 in Kennesaw and Peachtree City.

Earlier Thursday morning, the temperature plunged to 1 degree below zero in Cartersville.
