    ATLANTA - A wintry mix is possible early Wednesday as freezing temperatures mix with moisture. 

    Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz says freezing rain and sleet is likely for the morning commute. Amounts are expected to be light but slick spots on the roads are possible, especially bridges and overpasses.

    We're tracking the wintry mix and timing of when it clears, on Channel 2 Acton News This Morning.

    Temperatures on Tuesday reached only the upper 40s and low 50s in some areas. A cold front will knock temperatures down into the 30s on Wednesday. 

    "A cold front will come through tonight and tomorrow morning, bringing in temperatures in the 30s," Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz.

    Rain from Louisiana will move into Georgia through Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

    "A little precipitation approaching from the west and some cold air from the north, that will give us a chance for some wintry mix," Nitz said.
