…LIGHT WINTER PRECIPITATION POSSIBLE THURSDAY AND THURSDAY NIGHT OVER FAR NORTH GEORGIA…
A storm system will move across the Mid-South and Tennessee
valley bringing rain and winter precipitation to parts of far
north Georgia on Thursday and Thursday night.
As the precipitation begins Thursday morning over northwest
Georgia, it may fall as a mixture of rain, freezing rain, sleet
and/or snow, spreading east, before changing to mostly rain by
midday. As colder air moves back in later Thursday afternoon and
evening, the rain may change to snow with some light accumulations possible in higher elevations.
It is too soon to determine exact amounts and locations but if all
the ingredients come together there could be up to an inch of
snow at elevations above 1500 feet by early Friday morning.
Temperatures are expected to be cold on Friday with readings
staying in the 30s all day in north Georgia and 40s elsewhere.
