...SLICK ROADWAYS POSSIBLE TONIGHT INTO EARLY SATURDAY DUE TO
LIGHT WINTRY MIX AND BLACK ICE...
On the back side of a strong storm system that will bring
widespread showers to the area, much colder air will rush in
during the late afternoon and evening hours. Over portions of
North Georgia, just enough precipitation will hang on to allow for
a brief transition to light sleet and snow showers along and
north of a Rome to Blairsville line. Accumulations in this region
will be light averaging only a dusting to a half inch in the
highest elevations. Elsewhere, over west-central Georgia,
including north and west portions of the Atlanta metro area, a few
snow flurries are possible this evening, but no accumulations are
Of more concern for all areas under this Special Weather
Statement will be the residual wet roadways that may freeze into
the overnight hours with the rapid temperature drop expected.
Elevated winds will help to dry out some roadways but wind
sheltered locations and normally prone elevated surfaces could
experience black ice making for hazardous travel conditions late
Friday evening through Saturday morning.
