South Georgia snow chance going up
New data suggests snow chances for South Georgia are going up.
A strong arctic front will move across the state Tuesday and Tuesday night bringing another surge of arctic air. Areas of light snow or flurries are possible along the cold front as it moves across the region late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
Light snow and snow flurries are possible across Southwest Georgia north and west of a line from Miller County to Turner County between midnight and 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Even though expected snow amounts will be little to none, what does fall will be in the overnight hours when traffic is low. Therefore, some slick spots developing on bridges and overpasses cannot be ruled out.
Behind the front, winds will become northwest at 10 to 20 mph with gusts to near 25 mph. With the temperatures dropping into the 20s by Wednesday morning, wind chill values will drop into the teens. Temperatures will warm only into the 30s and 40s for highs Wednesday with wind chills holding in the 20s.
