National Weather Service: Snow is possible on Friday evening

08 December, 2017, 02:06 | Author: Genevieve Gibbs
  • The timing is looking slightly quicker with the bulk of the snow  mix now expected to fall during the day Saturday and into Saturday evening

A winter weather advisory was issued just after 3:30 p.m. on Thursday for portions of North Georgia. "We could start to see ... a rain-to-snow transition".

There's a slight chance of snow today before 11 a.m. with the precipitation turning into rain with snow mixed in. Best spot to see minor accumulations of snow will be along I-20 and I-85 in North Georgia.

All rain/snow should come to an end across Acadiana around lunchtime.

After a week of teasing you all with the potential for snow in the Mid-South, it looks like we are going to stay dry - but you'll never guess where the threat has shifted. Brining roads before snowfall prevent snow and ice from bonding to paved surfaces, enabling easy removal. Be cautious even when temperatures are shown to be near 32 degrees Fahrenheit. It's important to note that temperatures in the mountains will be below freezing, but they will be farther away from the moisture.

However, the majority of the region will see a cold rain.

Based on latest model guidance, here is how we see things playing out Friday.

Al Franken resigning from Senate

A few areas in this general strip may squeeze out one inch of total snow accumulation, but most other accumulations will likely be less than one inch.

Other schools on the south shore planned to be open Friday, as of Thursday afternoon.

A freeze watch is in effect in Stone and George counties from Friday evening through Saturday morning.

This week's fighting reportedly left aid workers trapped inside a building and unable to administer support to civilians. He remained in the country, however, and continued to wield political power from behind the scenes.

Another light freeze will be possible Sunday morning as well but during the afternoons this weekend the weather will improve with lots of sunshine and highs in the mid 50s.
