ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Most of the snow expected to fall on metro Atlanta and north Georgia has moved out of the area but that has left icy conditions that have led to extremely treacherous travel conditions.

In the aftermath of the storms, many warning and advisories continue until Saturday afternoon and into the evening hours. Also be aware of high winds which will continue to blow snow around. 

Alerts

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the north Georgia mountains through Saturday evening, where the most significant travel problems could occur. 

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all of metro Atlanta through Saturday morning, where minor travel issues are possible.

A Wind Advisory is also in effect for most of metro Atlanta and north Georgia as well.
