“They’ve predicted anywhere from one to two inches of snow, but with the ground being so warm, it more than likely won’t accumulate,” Lacey said. “The biggest issue we’re going to have is black ice. There’s really nothing you can do about that, snow chains won’t help with black ice. Drivers need to slow down, well under the speed limit, or stay at home if possible until the temperature warms up.”
There are high winds in the forecast for today and tonight, according to the National Weather Service. A northwest wind from 10-20 mph is expected with gusts as high as 30 mph.
Along with that burst of wind is the chance of snow. There is a 100 percent chance of precipitation today with occasional rain showers turning into snow sometime in the afternoon.
The Georgia Department of Transportation urged people to drive with caution this afternoon and Friday morning because of the threat of black ice, especially along bridges.
Today’s high is expected to be near 44, while the temperature will dip to about 27 tonight.
