Snow is once again in the forecast for parts of Northeast Georgia. Here is when our 11Alive StormTrackers say you can expect to see snowfall.
11Alive Chief Meteorologist Chris Holcomb says rain moves into the state Saturday night. At the same time, a cold shallow layer of air is setting up in northeast Georgia. This will cause that moisture to first begin as a mixture of snow and sleet before changing to freezing rain overnight.
Here's when to expect the wintry conditions:
Snow is not expected to fall at all on Saturday.
A wintry mix is expected to begin to fall in extreme Northeast Georgia counties overnight Sunday.
A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued from 1 a.m. through 10 a.m. Sunday for parts of the North Georgia Mountains from Gainesville northward. The advisory covers Fannin, Gilmer, Union, Towns, Pickens, Lumpkin, White, Hall and Banks counties.
Chris says the main threats in the are icy conditions early Sunday with 1/10 to 2/10 of an inch of ice accumulation possible. Travel could be slick in the advisory area -- especially on bridges and overpasses and other elevated surfaces.
Temperatures should rise above freezing by late morning when the precipitation changes to all rain.
Metro Atlanta will remain above freezing, which will bring a cold rain to the city.
