ATLANTA — Forecasters are extending a winter weather advisory for much of north Georgia over concerns about black ice forming on roads as light snow showers continued in the region.

The National Weather Service said the advisory would be in place until 7 p.m. Wednesday. It covers several counties and includes the cities of Blairsville, Dalton, Ringgold, Rome, Dahlonega and Woodstock.

Forecasters had said that up to 2 inches of snow could fall across a large part of the north Georgia mountains. Though some snow was still falling early Wednesday, the weather service said little if any additional snowfall accumulation is expected during the day Wednesday.

In Atlanta, officials said the city's emergency warming shelter would open Wednesday evening, and will remain open around the clock until temperatures rise and remain above freezing.
