Tracking snow flurries moving in

ATLANTA — The winter weather advisory in place has been extended to include more counties.  

The advisory now includes Dade, Walker, Catoosa, Whitfield, Chattooga, Gordon, Pickens, Dawson, Lumpkin, White, Floyd, Bartow and Cherokee.  

Up to 2 inch accumulations of snow are possible in the higher elevations of north Georgia.  There will be lighter accumulations in the lower elevations of the counties in the advisory. The advisory is in effect until 7 a.m. Tuesday.

Cold air moving in will squeeze out any remaining moisture from the lingering clouds.  It is possible that the higher elevations of these counties could see up to 2 inches of snow.  There could be a half inch to an inch elsewhere in those counties.  Watch for slick conditions to develop as the temperatures drop this evening and overnight.

It is possible to see some blowing flurries in the north metro area.  We don't expect any accumulations here.  We've been holding in the 40s for much of the afternoon.  We fall into the 30s by 7 p.m. We drop into the upper 20s by morning. 

Highs Tuesday will only be in the low 40s.  It will remain rather breezy.  We will have plenty of sunshine, though.  

Wednesday remains sunny with morning temps in the upper 20s.  Afternoon highs go up a little more in the low 50s.  

We have a low rain risk late Thursday.  The higher rain chance comes in Friday at 30% with highs in the mid 50s.  

We will have partly cloudy skies for the weekend with lows in the 30s and highs in the mid 50s.
