Maybe we will see a little snow for Christmas. This is from the National Weather Service in Peachtree City. We will update if there are any changes to the confidence of this weather event becoming bigger in accumulation chances. We will have our Communication Officers and Public Safety personnel working on Christmas Eve monitoring Santa’s route into Chattooga County. Listen out for updates on Christmas Eve!!!
A strong storm system will bring moderate to locally heavy rainfall, with even a few thunderstorms, to the area on Thursday. An intense cold front will bring much colder air to the area late Thursday into Thursday night. As the colder air moves in, any lingering rain showers could mix with or change over snow briefly before ending — mainly across portions of north Georgia (see graphic below).
NOTE: We are not expecting widespread and/or significant winter impacts with this event, however the potential for some accumulating snow (< 2 inches) does exist across the higher elevations of north Georgia.
1. What areas could see snow?
Areas in the lighter-shaded blue could see a brief period of snow with little to no accumulations. Areas in the darker blue (higher ridgetops) could see up to 2″ of snow late Thursday into Thursday evening. Anywhere outside the shaded areas across north GA could see a few snow flurries with no accumulation expected. NOTE: these areas (and amounts) are subject to change with future forecasts!
