Do you have questions about the winter weather threats possible later this week? We want to answer them!
11Alive meteorologist Chris Holcomb hosted a chat our Facebook page.
Here are some questions Chris answered Sunday night:
I keep seeing snow... But what I'm concerned with is ice! When is the ice coming in and how far south will there be issues?
The ice would be more of a threat Wednesday. It would extend as far south as Macon.
I am in Douglasville and would like to know if we will have snow then Ice and then snow again. And, With the ice coming, is it going to be enough to take out trees and power lines? Thank you for your hard work
Snow first on Tuesday, then ice possible on Wednesday. Any ice buildup can add weight to trees and power lines and affect power.
What is GDOT doing pro-actively that they did not do the last time to keep roads safe?
They are already activating their people.
How about the weather in Flowery Branch and when will it come in?
1-3 inches Tuesday. Ice Wednesday.
Two systems should it be a warning yet??
They will most likely upgrade to a winter weather advisory or winter storm warning overnight. They would do that within 24 hours of the event.
How much ice does it take to take down power lines??
1/4 inch of ice can weigh down trees and power lines.
How will Athens be affected?
Clarke Co isn't in the winter storm watch for Tuesday. But you are close enough that you will see a mix of rain and snow. You are in the winter storm watch for Tuesday pm into WEdnesday with an ice threat.
Do you think schools in the watch area should be closed?
Carrol Co is right on the line between snow and no snow. Need to be prepared for either.
What about Dahlonega again ?
4-6" Tuesday. Ice possible Wednesday.
When is that being upgraded We do have 2 fronts right????
2 pulses of moisture coming in. Watch will most likely be upgraded overnight. THey upgrade when it's within 24 hours.
How likely is it that we only see rain really don't want to get stuck a work for 3 days again!
Temps drop to below freezing Wednesday morning and may not get above freezing until Thursday at lunch.
Would this one be as bad as the last one?. What about the stretch of 400? Anything serious?
Mainly snow Tuesday. Better chance for ice on Wednesday.
Woodstock area...how much and when? Should I keep my daughter home from school on Tues so she doesn't get stuck there.
Woodstock would get 1-3 inches. It would probably begin before school starts on Tuesday.
How serious is this really? Should we worry about school in Cobb on Tues?
Cobb County will have a good chance for snow Tuesday. Ice will be more of a threat on Wednesday.
So forsyth county is expected to get 2-4" of snow and then 1/4-1/2" of ice? Is that correct?
Snow amounts are correct. Ice should be closer to 1/4 inch.
how with the ground temperature being so warm are the accumulations predicted possible??? 60s today??
We hit 62 today. That will have an impact on how much snow can accumulate.
