… WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 AM EST THURSDAY FOR MOST OF NORTH GEORGIA…

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 7 AM EST THURSDAY FOR NORTH GEORGIA OVERNIGHT… GENERALLY ALONG AND NORTH OF A CARROLLTON TO ATLANTA TO GAINESVILLE LINE.

ABUNDANT MOISTURE IN THE MID LEVELS WILL CONTINUE TO OVERRUN FREEZING TEMPERATURES AT THE SURFACE TO BRING A THREAT OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET TO MOST OF NORTH GEORGIA THIS EVENING AND OVERNIGHT. THE WINTRY THREAT IS MAINLY ALONG AND NORTH OF A CARROLLTON TO ATLANTA TO GAINESVILLE LINE WHERE EVAPORATIVE COOLING PROCESSES WILL HELP HOLD SURFACE TEMPERATURES AROUND FREEZING… RESULTING IN A THREAT OF LIGHT ACCUMULATIONS. PATCHY ICE ON BRIDGES… OVERPASSES AND OTHER ELEVATED SURFACES ARE THE MAIN THREAT… RESULTING IN HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS ACROSS THE ADVISED AREA THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS.

A GRADUAL WARM-UP FROM THE SOUTHWEST IS EXPECTED DURING THE NIGHT… WHICH SHOULD BRING AN END TO THE WINTRY THREAT BY SOMETIME EARLY THURSDAY MORNING AS THE PRECIPITATION CHANGES OVER TO ALL RAIN.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS…

A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY MEANS THAT PERIODS OF SLEET OR FREEZING RAIN WILL CAUSE TRAVEL DIFFICULTIES. BE PREPARED FOR SLIPPERY ROADS AND LIMITED VISIBILITIES… AND USE CAUTION WHILE DRIVING.
