Rain to light snow possible this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - Today will be a transition day that sees us moving from warm, wet weather to cool, dry weather for the weekend.  Here is how it will play out today.

The front that has been sitting over us bringing the flooding rains will slowly move east this afternoon, and that is when things will begin to change.

The light rain will transition into light snow this afternoon.  A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the area from 11am to 7pm EST.  Winter Storm Warnings are in effect for North Georgia. 

With the snow, I expect about 1"-2" on the plateau, .25"-.50" in the valley, 2"-4"" in the Blue Ridge, and 1"-3" in N. Ga. (higher elevations could receive an inch or two more).

Anything that does fall may stick on the grass, but temps will stay above freezing (mid to upper 30s) while the snow is falling so I don't expect major problems on the roads other than wet roadways.  The exception may be on the plateau where temps have been in the low 30s through the day.

We will see temperatures eventually dropping into the 20s tonight.  Fortunately, we will see some gusty winds from the north at 10-20 mph that will rapidly evaporate most of the water on the roads.  With that said, any roads that do have water on them tonight will freeze, and cause problems for you Friday morning.

    We are really going to crank up the thermostat through the rest of the week. Yesterday we had highs in the upper 80s. Going forward, we will break 90 every afternoon through Saturday.More

    Good Tuesday.  Our mornings and evenings will be awesome through the rest of the week.  Even during the heat of each day the humidity will be low enough to keep it from being too oppressive.More

    Good Monday. The good news is the humidity will be dropping over the next few days. The bad news our daytime highs will be climbing into the low to mid 90s again.More
