Below-freezing temps could bring snow to North Georgia starting overnight Friday

Below-freezing temps could bring snow to North Georgia starting overnight Friday

Most communities are in the mid 40s.

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for parts of the area Friday where brief, minor accumulations are possible. This will most likely be in isolated areas.

All precipitation is expected to end by late Friday night, with clearing to follow early Saturday as cold, dry air makes a push southward into our area.

Calcasieu, Cameron, Beauregard and Vernon parishes are not included in the current Winter Weather Advisory.

However, the majority of the region will see a cold rain. Cold on Sunday with rain and hill snow. Temperatures will reach the mid and upper 30s by morning but remain above freezing.

There are a couple of more chances for snow in the upcoming week, but no accumulation forecasts have been made.

WAFB says a wintry mix of snow and rain is possible Thursday night in the Baton Rouge area. The advisory will begin at 5 a.m. Friday and run through 7 a.m. on Saturday.

Average temperature highs for the upcoming winter months are 60-degrees in December, 63-degrees in January and 66-degrees in February. However, temperatures will go back below freezing rather quickly tomorrow night, and any lingering water on roads could freeze. That's not quite enough to cancel all your plans for, but it's certainly enough to cause some issues on the roads.

REMEMBER: With nearly every winter weather event in Alabama, there is a surprise or two.

The weather service forecasts Friday's high at 40 degrees, followed by an overnight low of 27.

After a warmer than normal fall the colder than normal temperatures are expected to stick around into the second half of December.
