THE LATEST

As of 5 a.m. Tuesday, Floyd E-911 had not received any reports of black ice on area roads. 

Weather service warns of black ice potential:

“Melting snow and wet surfaces will refreeze this evening across portions of far north Georgia as temperatures drop into the 20s to low 30s. This will create areas of black ice, especially on bridges, untreated secondary roads, and in sheltered locations. Black ice can be difficult to see and can make roads very slippery. Use caution if traveling this evening through Tuesday morning. Slow down and allow extra time to reach your destination. Do not assume that a well-traveled roadway will be free of black ice.”

Temperatures have been at freezing or lower since 10 p.m. Monday and will stay there until 9 this morning. The forecast low overnight is 27 degrees (at 6 a.m.)

Back to school, too: Please remember that many area school systems return from Christmas break this morning.

OUTLOOK

There is a possibility for some mixed wintry precipitation in far north Georgia from the early to mid morning hours of Thursday and again Thursday night into early Friday. Accumulations are not expected at this time. Current models show snow possible around 7 a.m. Thursday.
