Freeze Warning and Wind Advisory Tonight
Potential for snow has decreased
Snow: The potential for snow has continued to decrease and this morning the mention of snow was removed from the forecast. Rain showers will be possible across extreme north Georgia (north of Rome to Gainesville) this morning through about 5pm. It appears at this time the cold air will be lagging behind the moisture so snow is not expected, however we cannot rule out a few snowflakes across extreme north Georgia.
Minimum Temperatures: Minimum temperatures will drop behind the front with much of north Georgia in the low to mid 20s and the mid 20s to mid 30s across central Georgia for Wednesday morning. There is a freeze warning for north and most of central Georgia for tonight. This cold air will spread further south for Thursday morning with all of north and central Georgia expected to be at or below freezing. If you have items such as plants, pipes, or other objects sensitive to below freezing temperatures, be sure to protect them for tonight and Wednesday night!
Strong Winds: Strong winds are expected behind the front with winds of 20-25 MPH and gusts to 35-40MPH thus a Wind Advisory has been issued for north and central Georgia. These strong winds will start across north Georgia this morning and spread to central Georgia this afternoon - the winds will decrease overnight and become below wind advisory criteria by 1am. Winds will still remain in the 10-15MPH range for the rest of tonight into tomorrow morning.
Wind Chill Values: The combination of cold temperatures and strong winds will cause the wind chill values (feels like temperatures) to drop into the teens across most of north Georgia and parts of central Georgia. It will feel COLD! Folks will need to plan accordingly to protect themselves, family, friends and pets from the cold feeling temperatures.
