THE LATEST

Because of Tuesday morning’s stormy forecast, Chattooga County Schools will have a three-hour delay. Buses will pick up students three hours later than normal that morning. (From Sheriff Mark Schrader).

  • Other schools opening late in extreme Northwest Georgia: Dade County, two hours; Walker County Schools, two hours; Catooa County schools, two hours.
  • Several counties in Tennessee also are delayed the start of the school day because of weather concerns.
  • Several Northeast Alabama school systems are delaying the start of the day for the same reason. WEIS

Also watch for patchy, dense fog overnight.

Areas of low clouds, drizzle and fog will continue across north and central Georgia the rest of this evening and tonight. Some patchy dense fog is possible with visibilities dropping to a 1/4 mile or less. Use caution if driving in these areas. Permit extra travel time and stopping distance. Use low beam headlights and fog lamps on your vehicle if you encounter dense fog.

WHAT THE WEATHER SERVICE EXPECTS:

Below please find an 11-minute audio report from the National Weather Service’s Peachtree City office. It looks like it will move into Northwest Georgia first and we’ll likely see the brunt of the storm before it sweeps into metro Atlanta. Look for storms probably after 3 a.m. through 7 a.m. No watches or warnings as of 4 p.m.

Stay in touch: We’ll have continuing weather updates all day on Hometown Headlines’ websites. Please also check on Facebook @hometownheadlines, @bartowheadlines or on Twitter @hometown or @bartowheadlines.

Our best chance for storms will be from 2 until 8 a.m. Tuesday. Rainfall: Around a half inch; heavier in storms.
