This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of North and Central Georgia.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight...

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect today through 1 AM Friday
morning for the mountains of northeast and north central Georgia.

A Flash Flood Watch remains in effect through this evening for
Central Georgia.

For North Georgia, a mixture of rain and wet snow is expected today
with a possible transition to all snow in the higher elevations of
the Georgia mountains later this afternoon. Snow accumulations up to
1 to 2 inches are possible within the Winter Weather Advisory, with
isolated higher amounts possible over 2000 feet. Tonight, wintry
precip will move out of the area as temperatures fall at or below
freezing, and patchy black ice is possible, especially over bridges
and overpasses, with any residual water left on the roadways.

Further south, soils remain very saturated and another one to two
inches of rain is expected to lead to heavy runoff and ponding in
low-lying areas and on roadways. In addition, many rivers are
currently at very high streamflows with additional rainfall
exacerbating the threat of flash flooding.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday...

No hazardous weather conditions expected at this time with the next
round of potentially heavy rainfall expected Sunday night through
Monday night.


Spotter activation is not requested but spotters are encouraged
to submit reports of winter weather through the web by going to

...Wintry Mix Possible Primarily in Higher Elevations...

Rain will continue to overspread the area through the day today.
As colder air filters into north Georgia through this afternoon,
a transition to a mixture of rain and snow is possible. During the
afternoon hours, this mixture could briefly change to all snow
before quickly ending by mid-to-late afternoon.

Accumulations are expected to remain limited, generally a half
inch or less, though amounts up to an inch are possible at the
highest elevations of Dade and Walker counties. Also of concern is
the fact that temperatures will drop quickly Thursday night into
Friday morning. Any lingering moisture on the roadways during this
timeframe will result in black ice which could create additional
hazardous driving conditions.
