Forecasters are calling for a “wintry mix of precipitation” in and around parts of metro Atlanta that could include snow, late Tuesday night into Wednesday. While flurries are expected, little to know snow accumulation is expected in urban areas outside.
There is also a slight chance of snow on Friday, forecasters say. The chance of rain or snow early in the week is 30 percent. That’s when temperatures will dip into the 30s early in the morning hours, before climbing to the low 40s.
The light rain over the city Tuesday morning is likely to be replaced by sunshine during the afternoon, when highs will reach the upper 50s, according to WSB-TV.
The National Weather Service said that the precipitation should begin before midnight Tuesday as rain, but change to a mix of rain and freezing rain or snow, generally north of I-20.
“Little accumulation is expected, with up to an inch across the higher elevations,” the Weather Service said in a statement.
Thursday will be sunny but cold, with morning lows in the mid-20s and afternoon highs in the mid-40s.
A 20 percent chance of rain or snow is forecast for Friday, when afternoon highs in the low 40s will follow morning lows in the low 30s.
Sunny skies, highs in the low 40s and lows in the low 20s are forecast for Saturday.
