Atlanta area slowly rebounding from winter snow storm

ATLANTA

Many school districts throughout the metro area announced that they'd remain closed Friday, and Deal extended a state of emergency to Sunday night.

He said in a statement that the declaration was extended to allow the state to continue using certain resources to help local governments clear roads and deal with other storm-related issues. Deal and emergency response officials have taken responsibility for poor planning leading up to the storm.

Temperatures in the region are expected to reach the low 50s Friday, which should help responders clear ice accumulations from roads.
