The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for parts of north Georgia. Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Murray, Pickens, Towns, Union and White counties. The higher elevations above 1500 feet could have some light accumulations of snow beginning late this afternoon into the evening. As the rain moves out and cold air moves in, some parts of north Georgia have the chance of seeing a few flurries.
North Georgia also has the chance to see some black ice developing as the temperatures drop very quickly. The wind will help to dry up the roads, but any puddles or moisture left behind could glaze over mainly in north Georgia.
There is also a wind advisory in effect this afternoon into the overnight hours. The cold air literally blowing in here will whip up between 20-25mph from the northwest. We will have wind gusts up to 35mph. These winds are strong enough to bring down some trees in the saturated ground.
