Cold rain could smack Middle Georgia on Friday night and Saturday, but truly frozen stuff isnt expected around the midstate.
Thats from the National Weather Service, which warned Friday in a special weather statement that wintry weather is expected farther to the north.
The cold rain is expected in Middle Georgia late Friday and overnight. Farther to the north, lower temperatures could change the rain to light snow or sleet, which the weather service says should be mainly north of a line from La Grange to Fayetteville to Cleveland. South of that line, it should be mostly light rain, the agency said. In northern Georgia, some of that rain could turn into black ice on roads.
The rain should be over by Saturday afternoon in central Georgia, the National Weather Service said.
Saturdays forecast for Macon calls for a 30-percent chance of rain, mainly before 10 a.m. The day should be mostly sunny, with a high near 60.
