Wintry weather expected late Sunday

Posted January 07, 2018

Temperatures are expected to slowly fall through the teens Saturday night.

The National Weather Service has also issued a winter weather advisory for the region until 6 p.m. Saturday amid the cold temperatures and wind causing blowing and drifting snow on the roadways. O'Hara says normal temperatures for this time of year feature highs of around 41 degrees and lows of around 26 degrees. Areas along the outer Cape could see snow showers Saturday night.

"I, for one, am really looking forward to it", he said.

Wintry mix early will slow travel; warming trend still working in!
Winter weather advisory in effect until 9 pm Monday

Hall County's interim emergency management director, Casey Ramsey, put the word out to first responders on Friday, warning of a "very high probability" of freezing rain overnight Sunday and into the morning on Monday.

The National Weather Service has forecast a 60 percent chance of rain or freezing rain Monday after 1 a.m. and continuing into rain later in the day. Little to no ice accumulation is expected, but we know it doesn't take much. Air temperatures should rise above freezing late Sunday afternoon and evening, but ground and road temperatures will remain below freezing.

A light wintry mix is possible Monday, but conditions look much brighter for Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will drop back around the mid 40s Friday with a likely chance for rain.
