After a stormy start to our Monday, it's time to brace for frigid temperatures.

Fierce Arctic air is racing toward south Georgia and will likely bring record low temperatures.

Lee County Public Works Director Mike Sistrunk says there are three key impacts they're preparing for. 

"We are making sure that our waters and everything doesn't have any exposed pipes lying out. Also, animal control is working right now on trying to house all the animals to the inside of the building to make sure none of them are left outside. Also, we have some crews out checking for any place with standing water," said Mike Sistrunk Public Works Director.

All of the moisture on the roads should be gone by the time we see freezing temperatures, but Lee County Public Works will have a sand truck loaded and ready to go just in case.
