Portions of north and central Georgia, including West Cobb could see some snow flurries or a wintry mix as temps drop as we head into the weekend.
Overnight freezing temps are expected through Sunday night, and Friday night and Saturday hold slight chances of precipitation, according to the National Weather Service, which issued a freeze warning that includes Marietta and Powder Springs. It's effective through 9 a.m. Friday.
"A fast-moving but potent upper low sweeping across the Tennessee Valley and southern Appalachians [on] Saturday will bring a chance for at least light wintry precipitation to north Georgia," according to NWS' Hazardous Weather Outlook. "Any accumulations are expected to remain light at this time. Generally a half inch or less mainly across far north Georgia with up to an inch at the highest elevations of the far northern mountains.
"In addition, very cold overnight low temperatures are expected to continue across the area through Sunday night with a hard freeze possible across north Georgia [on] Saturday night."
After getting down to about 30 degrees overnight, Friday is expected to see mostly cloudy skies and a high temp near 46, according to the NWS forecast. Friday night’s low is expected to dip to the 30-degree mark. Rain and snow showers are possible between 5 and 10 a.m. Saturday, with a chance of rain showers continuing thereafter.
The predicted overnight lows Saturday and Sunday are 27 and 24 degrees, respectively.
Wind also will be a feature of this weekend’s weather conditions, as gusts as high as 20 mph are expected through Saturday night.
