Georgia bore the brunt of a wintry mix over the weekend that hit multiple southeastern states.

Some 300,000 people in Georgia were still in the dark on Sunday, and hundreds were stranded on Saturday in airports with delayed or cancelled flights.

Most of the power outages were in the Atlanta metro area.

The Carolinas looked to be the second hardest-hit states, although sleet and freezing rain blanketed Maryland, Pennsylvania, and the District of Columbia as well. Some 9,000 households were without power in North Carolina, and about 5,000 remained without juice in South Carolina.

By Monday, temperatures in the southeast should move into the 40s at least, said forecasters.

At least three traffic-related deaths - two in Georgia and one in South Carolina - were blamed on the weather.
