...LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES EXPECTED ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA LATE
Behind a sharp cold front, light rain is expected to mix with or
change over to light snow before ending late tonight.
Areas that have the best chance of seeing any snow will be across
mainly the higher elevations of north Georgia, from Chatsworth to
Blue Ridge to Blairsville. Snow accumulations of up to 1/2 inch
will be possible. Locally higher amounts may occur along
northwest facing slopes.
Timing of the transition to rain and snow, or all snow, will be
between 11 PM this evening and 2 AM early Friday morning. Precipitation
should end shortly thereafter, as temperatures continue to fall
across the area. Even through late Friday morning, temperatures
are expected to remain below freezing which will create some slick
spots on roadways, especially bridges and overpasses. Use extra
caution if you are planning travel late tonight through Friday
morning across the higher elevations of north Georgia.
