Following the rare snowstorm that wreaked havoc across the South, the weather will warm for the weekend, allowing the snow and ice to melt around Atlanta.

With abandoned cars still stuck on the roadways around the region, Thursday night brought more troubles after dropping below freezing.

With temperatures below freezing, roads could refreeze, creating more slippery and dangerous travel conditions across the region.

However, temperatures will increase more than 10 degrees on Friday, allowing highs to rise into the 50s during the day. This will allow the remaining snow and ice to melt around the city and for cleanup efforts to begin.

As for the weekend, rain showers will dampen the area both days. Morning fog may also create some travel delays for those headed out on Saturday morning.

The start of the first week of February will be chilly, as temperatures drop back down into the 40s on Monday.
