Despite some areas of of East and Central Georgia not being in an Advisory, there remains the possibility of some winter weather primarily Friday evening into early Saturday. That said, we will see some patchy sleet across the area late this afternoon but warming temps above the surface should allow a return to just rain during the evening. The rain will continue into Friday with anticipated temperatures being warm enough to allow for just a cold rain across the area. During the late evening into the overnight period however, colder air will begin to infiltrate the area allowing for a possible transition to a rain and snow mix before the precipitation exits the area. Only light accumulations over isolated locations would be expected under this scenario with limited travel concerns initially. Of more concern will be into Saturday morning as temperatures will approach the freezing mark allowing for residual water on elevated surfaces to freeze. Caution is advised on area roadways late Friday night into Saturday morning for this black ice potential on mainly elevated bridges and overpasses. $$
