Special Statement

Statement as of 4:37 PM EST on February 08, 2016

Expires 5:00 AM EST on February 09, 2016


... Scattered snow showers and flurries expected across northwest
and west-central Georgia...

A cold airmass along with a series of upper level disturbances
will increase the potential for snow showers or snow flurries on
Tuesday across northwest and west-central Georgia. Accumulations
of 1/2 to 1 inch will be possible across Dade... Walker... Chattooga
and Floyd counties. A dusting to 1/2 inch is possible to the south
and east of these areas... including the Atlanta Metro area. The
best chance to see snow showers and accumulations will be between
10 am and 10 PM Tuesday. Heavier snow accumulations are expected
across the mountains of north Georgia where a Winter Weather
Advisory is currently in effect.

Short bursts of heavier snow could accompany the showers by
Tuesday afternoon which could quickly cover the ground and cause
slick roads... especially bridges and overpasses. By Tuesday
night... areas of black ice could form where residual moisture
freezes as temperatures fall well below freezing.

Stay tuned to the latest forecasts for updates on this evolving
winter weather situation across north Georgia.
