ATLANTA - The risk for winter weather impacts has increased for metro Atlanta Tuesday.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Katie Walls said models are coming together to show a higher chance for snow over metro Atlanta.
Walls said metro Atlanta could see accumulating snow of less than one inch, but the Georgia mountains could see more. She cautioned that the system is still several days away.
Winter weather combined with freezing temperatures could lead to icy roads Tuesday afternoon and evening.
Current models (which can change) for Noon Tuesday shift the mix in the Metro to snow, clearing later in the afternoon, followed by frigid temperatures and potential for icy roads. Please plan for it now. I don't want you to be caught off guard. #gawx pic.twitter.com/v6hG61AD2d— Katie Walls (@KatieWallsWSB) January 27, 2019
Models are coming into better agreement for Tuesday, switching rain over to snow midday. Though accumulation will be light in the Metro, falling temperatures (below freezing) will create some icy roads.

The coldest temps so far this season are expected Wednesday morning with lows in the teens to near 20 degrees. Wind chills could dip into the single digits in the mountains.
