A WINTERY MIX OF PRECIPITATION EXPECTED OVER EXTREME NORTH GEORGIA LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT…

A WARM FRONT IN CENTRAL MISSISSIPPI WILL GRADUALLY MOVE NORTHEAST THROUGH ALABAMA TONIGHT AND INTO NORTH GEORGIA ON THURSDAY. THIS FRONT WILL CAUSE A WINTRY MIX OF PRECIPITATION TO MOVE INTO NORTHWEST GEORGIA LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND THE REMAINDER OF EXTREME NORTH GEORGIA THIS EVENING. SURFACE TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED TO BE NEAR FREEZING WHEN THE INITIAL PRECIPITATION BEGINS LATE THIS AFTERNOON. LIGHT SLEET OR FREEZING RAIN WILL BE LIKELY.

VERY THIN ICE ACCUMULATIONS CAN BE EXPECTED… ESPECIALLY ON BRIDGES AND OVERPASSES… WHICH MAY CAUSE HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS. MOTORISTS ARE ADVISED TO USE CAUTION AND SLOW DOWN.

AS THE WARM FRONT APPROACHES NORTH GEORGIA DURING THE NIGHT TEMPERATURES WILL GRADUALLY RISE INTO THE MID 30S BY THURSDAY MORNING. THIS WILL CHANGE OVER ANY FROZEN OR FREEZING PRECIPITATION TO ALL RAIN. RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF ONE QUARTER TO ONE HALF INCH CAN BE EXPECTED ON THURSDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT.
