    On Wednesday afternoon, Severe Weather Team's Brad Nitz said all the data is indicating a chance of snow as we ring in 2018. He added consistency in the new data is increasing so Georgians should be thinking about snow in the next few days.

    Earlier on Wednesday, Channel 2’s Darryn Moore reported a mix of sleet and heavy rain falling in Gwinnett County during Channel 2 Action News This Morning.
