When Will It Snow in Metro Atlanta?

 

ATLANTA, GA (WGST) - With a strong arctic cold front moving into the Atlanta area overnight tonight, everyone is asking when it will snow here in the metro area. 

A number of government offices and schools have already announced that they will be closed tomorrow. 

A winter weather advisory is in effect for metro Atlanta from 3 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday with a winter storm warning issued for counties north of metro Atlanta.

So what can we expect?

Our partners at CBS46 have your timeline: 

Monday night: No precipitation is expected in metro Atlanta.

Tuesday morning commute: Scattered rain is expected in metro Atlanta for your morning commute, with scattered snow in northwest Georgia.

Tuesday late morning: Scattered rain and snow is expected in metro Atlanta and north Georgia. 

Tuesday afternoon: It's expected to be dry by 2 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday night and Wednesday morning: The ground should be mostly dry for your commute Wednesday morning, but any wet roads will freeze, creating the potential for dangerous black ice.

 

How much will it snow?

A dusting of snow is possible in northwest metro Atlanta, including Cobb and Cherokee counties.

The further northwest you go from Atlanta, the higher your risk of accumulating snow.

About 2 inches of snow is possible in the north Georgia mountains.

Hopefully we won't have another Snowmageddon on our hands!
