Flurries possible Saturday


ATLANTA - Cold air is headed toward metro Atlanta and it may bring flurries to the area this weekend.

“Clouds and even a few embedded showers along a cold front headed our way,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said. “Not a big rainmaker, but this is going to come in with some cold air, and it looks like there may be a little overlap in that, which means there could be snow flurries.”

Friday brought mild temperatures and clear skies, but cloud cover is expected to increase throughout the afternoon. There’s a chance of stray showers later in the day, but they will be few and far between and light, Nitz said.

By Saturday morning, temperatures are expected to drop to the low 40s and flurries are possible. Nitz said light snow may hit areas from the north Georgia mountains to southern parts of metro Atlanta. In terms of snowfall amounts, Nitz said, “nothing more than a trace or dusting at most.”

Drier air is expected to move into the area by late morning, but flurries may return by the evening. Nitz said it will clear out, but then, even colder air is moving in.

Temperatures are expected to be in the mid-20s Sunday morning and peak in the 40s. Nitz said temperatures will return to the 50s next week.
