Light rain will continue across much of north and central Georgia today and into Friday and Friday night. Some of the rain could become mixed with or turn to snow late tonight and Friday across parts of west central and north Georgia. This rain snow mix will end across north Georgia Friday evening but move into parts of central Georgia Friday night. Some accumulations are possible late tonight and Friday from near Hamilton to the Atlanta area, and then northeastward toward the northeast mountains. Due to the warm ground as well as surface temperatures remaining above freezing, most, if not all of the accumulation will be in grassy areas and on elevated surfaces. As the rain and snow mix moves into central Georgia Friday night, light accumulations are possible as far south as Columbus, Americus and Dublin. Most, if not all of the accumulation Friday night will be in grassy areas and on elevated surfaces. In addition, much colder temperatures will plunge into the area behind this system Friday night into Saturday morning. Although most of the precipitation will be gone by then, residual wet roadways will freeze very quickly prior to any drying that takes place. This black ice scenario would create hazardous travel conditions areawide Friday night into Saturday morning, especially for elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses. Stay tuned to the latest forecast as well as possible watches or advisories should the forecast change as this continues to be a developing system. $$
