Winter Storm Warning Tuesday PM Into Wednesday

February 11, 2014

The National Weather Service said this morning (Tuesday) that this winter event will be a two-round affair.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from now until 6 p.m. tonight.

Meanwhile, a winter storm warning is in effect starting at 6 p.m. tonight

National Weather Service Meteorologist Harry Geripetritus said the area can expect the snow to pick up as Wednesday arrives.

“We could see snow developing and it could mix in with a little bit of sleet at times, but we will see some periods of heavy snow,” he said.

He went on to say that Interstate 85 will serve as a dividing line of sorts as to what people see Wednesday.

“Areas right along I-85 and to the north and west should see mainly snow,” said Geripetritus.  “Once you get south and east of I-85, you will see a lot of sleet mix in.”

Geripetritus said the end result is expected to be significant snowfall totals throughout northeast Georgia.

He said northeast Georgia could see up to six to eight inches of snow.

Things should improve as Thursday moves along with temperatures then starting to warm up.
