All weekend, the metro Atlanta area has been experiencing some of the coldest weather the area has seen in nearly nine years.

The Georgia Department of Transportation said it is prepared to treat roads if necessary.

The possibility of snow comes on the heels of a weekend that left thousands in the metro Atlanta area without water as pipes burst in the bitter cold. Several counties issued boil water advisories as crews worked to prepare water lines.

Deon said the storm could begin as a brief rain and snow mix, then turn into light snow.


Accumulation is not expected.

Here’s what to know about the system:

  • North metro Atlanta could see a dusting
  • Higher evaluations/mountains could see up to half an inch
  • Warmer temps to return later this week with highs in the 60s by Thursday
