A freezing rain advisory is in effect in the purple areas from northeast Arkansas to Mississippi meaning roads could be very slippery in places. That far south they don't have the ability to rapidly treat the roads.
The deep blue area is a winter weather advisory in effect for tonight for light freezing rain that may make roads slippery.
Finally, the dark green in northern Georgia into the Appalachians is a winter storm watch for freezing rain for Friday and, farthest east, Friday night. Atlanta is expecting a trace to a tenth of an inch of freezing rain. If you are traveling to these areas please keep in mind that conditions will be difficult and traffic very slow.
