ATLANTA (AP) - Authorities identified a fan who fell more than 60 feet from an upper-level platform at Atlanta's Turner Field as 29-year-old Ronald Homer of Conyers.

The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office early Tuesday released the man's identity and said an autopsy is planned for Tuesday.

Homer fell during Monday night's game between the Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee said there's no indication of foul play, and the fall appears to have been an accident.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.
