… WINTRY PRECIPITATION EXPECTED FOR NORTH AND PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA SUNDAY NIGHT INTO MONDAY MORNING…

A STORM SYSTEM DEVELOPING OVER THE PLAINS WILL MOVE QUICKLY INTO THE TENNESSEE VALLEY REGION BY SUNDAY MORNING… SPREADING PRECIPITATION INTO PORTIONS OF NORTH AND WEST GEORGIA SUNDAY AFTERNOON. AT THIS TIME… IT APPEARS THAT THE PRECIPITATION ON SUNDAY AFTERNOON WILL FALL AS RAIN. HOWEVER… AS WE GO INTO SUNDAY NIGHT THE PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD WITH RAIN BECOMING MIXED WITH SNOW ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA DURING THE EVENING. PRECIPITATION IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE TO ALL SNOW ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA AFTER MIDNIGHT… AND CONTINUE INTO MONDAY MORNING. ACROSS PORTIONS OF CENTRAL GEORGIA A RAIN-SNOW MIX IS EXPECTED… GENERALLY NORTH OF A COLUMBUS TO MACON LINE.

LATEST INDICATIONS ARE THAT SOME AREAS ACROSS NORTH GEORGIA COULD SEE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS IN THE 1 TO 2 INCH RANGE… MAINLY FROM A CEDARTOWN TO GAINESVILLE LINE NORTHWARD… BEFORE THE SNOW TAPERS OFF TO FLURRIES MONDAY AFTERNOON.

THERE IS STILL SOME UNCERTAINTY… AND SMALL ADJUSTMENTS IN THE STORM TRACK MAY MAKE SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IN THE POTENTIAL SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS.
