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 expected. 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. $$
