Very Slight Chance of Winter Precipitation
December 6, 2017, 12:35 p.m.
According to the National Weather Service in Peachtree City, Georgia our area might see a little bit of snow headed towards the weekend. Note: no accumulating snow is expected and the forecast is still developing.
From the National Weather Service:
This continues to be a low confidence, low/no accumulation event.
What: Cold temperatures will combine with several upper-level disturbances to increase the potential for light snow Friday through Saturday, especially over north Georgia.
When: There are two separate periods we’re watching:
1. Early Friday morning, generally after midnight and through sunrise.
2. Friday evening through noon Saturday.We are currently only advertising 20-30% chances of any winter precipitation for BOTH of these periods.
Where: Hard to pin down this early in the game, but generally north of I-20. Saturday morning, if enough moisture is available, temperatures would support light snow as far south as Columbus and Macon.
How Much: At this time, moisture is extremely limited and we a currently not advertising any accumulations. The best chance for accumulations is in the higher elevations of north Georgia, and amounts may need to be added in subsequent forecast packages.
Confidence: Overall forecast confidence is LOW to MEDIUM. We are still seeing lots of variations between models and between model runs. Confidence should improve over the next few days.
Please continue to monitor our forecast as changes are likely.
