Bundle up. The National Weather Service says there’s a 40 percent chance of rain and snow on Monday evening, Feb. 8, and a slight chance of snow during the day on Tuesday.
NWS expects little or no snow accumulation.
NWS has also issued a “Hazardous Weather Outlook” for many north and central Georgia counties, including DeKalb County.
“The combination of a cold air mass in place and a series of upper level disturbances will bring the potential of wintry weather to portions of north Georgia today and Tuesday,” NWS says. “A winter weather advisory is in effect for areas mainly along and east of a line from Ringgold to Dawsonville to Cleveland. A mix of rain and snow is possible today across the higher elevations of north Georgia. Snow is expected to change to all snow this evening across much of north and central Georgia. Any lingering moisture on the roadways overnight will re-freeze and form black ice, especially on elevated surfaces such as bridges and overpasses.”
NWS says “light snow will continue through Tuesday night” with the highest accumulations in the Northeast Georgia mountains.
After Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday will be cold and sunny, with a high of 36 degrees on Wednesday, and there’s a slight chance of rain on Friday.
