There’s a chance that Middle Georgia residents will see snow flurries Tuesday morning, but any snow won’t hang around long.
“We’ve still got about a 30 percent chance of snow showers in the morning,” said Dan Darbe, a National Weather Service meteorologist in Peachtree City. But snow that falls will melt immediately in warmer air and on warmer ground, he said.
Darbe said there’s no reason to panic, because most likely there won’t be snow around Macon.
It’s more a question of how much moisture will remain after a cold front passes through -- and when that happens. A light rain in the morning could change over to snow, likely between 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. But those flurries would be fleeting at best.
Darbe said everyone from Macon northward has a chance of seeing flurries Tuesday morning. Any accumulations, though, would be limited to more northern spots.
“We might get a light dusting up in the mountains of north Georgia,” he said.
Lows Monday night were predicted to reach around 35. Tuesday’s forecast calls for clouds and a high near 53. Tuesday could get gusty, with a 20-percent chance of showers before 1 p.m.
Tuesday night’s low is expected to reach around 34, while Wednesday will have a high around 55. Wednesday and Thursday nights will be much colder, with lows predicted around 26 and 28.
