Original story

Snow is expected across north Georgia this afternoon and tonight, according to the National Weather Service's winter weather advisory.

A "cold polar air mass" is expected to spread into north Georgia as widespread rain shifts south. The result: Rain will mix with and change over to snow across portions of north Georgia, including Cobb County

The heaviest snowfall would be in the northeast Georgia mountains.

The winter weather advisory, which lapses Friday morning at 7, warns of light snow and black ice north of a Carrollton-to-Atlanta-to-Jefferson line and south of a Rome-to-Hiawassee line.

Less than 1 inch of the white stuff is expected to accumulate on grassy and elevated surface and could create nuisance driving conditions. Black ice also may form Thursday night and Friday morning when temps dip below freezing.
