The Butts County School System will be closed Wednesday, school officials announced ahead of forecasts of snow and freezing temperatures.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, school officials noted the possibility of black ice on local roadways.
"If this forecast comes to pass, very little melting will occur because of very low temperatures," the post said. "Black ice is invisible and dangerous! Parents, please think about our teenage drivers and consider keeping them off the roads."
Butts County government offices were expected to be delayed in opening Wednesday until 10 a.m. Officials said in a statement that conditions would be evaluated at 8 a.m. Wednesday to determine if further delay was warranted.
Gordon State College in Barnesville announced its campuses would close at 7 p.m. Tuesday and remain closed through Wednesday. "Regular operations are expected to resume on Thursday, Jan. 18, if conditions permit," spokeswoman Tamara Boatwright said.
Butts County was among many in Georgia under a winter weather advisory from 5 p.m. Tuesday until 10 a.m. Wednesday as snow and freezing temperatures were expected to move into the area.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service said up to 2 inches of snow was expected to fall across much of central Georgia.
