ATLANTA (AP) -- Another round of snow and ice is expected to coat Atlanta and other parts of the Deep South this week.

Just two weeks ago, Atlanta and other Southern cities were paralyzed by a couple of inches of snow. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal apologized for the unpreparedness and created a task force to look into the problems.

A winter storm watch was issued for the Atlanta area. A spokesman for Mayor Kasim Reed says the city will begin treating priority roads and bridges Monday night. Forecasters say a snow, sleet and freezing rain will develop in parts of Kansas, Oklahoma and possibly north Texas on Monday.

The weather will spread east into parts of Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama and into the Atlanta area around Tuesday. Several inches of snow could accumulate.
