Southeast braced on Monday for a blast of freezing rain, snow and ice, and government officials took early steps to ensure they were not caught flat-footed in another winter storm. A cold air mass behind an arctic front was likely to bring a wintry mix for a broad swath of the country stretching from Texas to North Carolina early in the week, the National Weather Service said. In Georgia, where sleet and snow may begin falling as early as Monday night, Governor Nathan Deal put emergency response agencies on alert and asked residents to make plans to be off the roads by early evening.
