There's a little snow in the forecast for parts of north Georgia, and Governor Nathan Deal promises we won't see the problems that shut down Atlanta during last week's winter storm.
Wednesday night in Albany, we talked to the Governor about that new Severe Weather Warning Task Force he appointed this week.
He admits his administration did not take the proper steps to prevent that massive traffic jam that stranded hundreds of thousands of Georgians for hours.
Deal says the task force will put fresh eyes on the state's emergency plans and will make recommendations to improve preparation and response in the future.
"It is an effort to be more proactive to get advice from people who see these issues from other perspectives other than what we may see at the state level," said Governor Deal.
The task force includes meteorologists, state agency leaders, politicians, and first responders.State Representative Jay Roberts from Ocilla is the only member from our area.
