Midstate likely to miss out on frozen precipitation

The region's warm-again, cool-again winter weather blend won't chill the midstate enough by tomorrow or Thursday to freeze up any snowflakes when a precip-hauling low-pressure system rolls in.

Forecasters at the National Weather Service's Peachtree City office late Tuesday afternoon were expecting temperatures today in the middle-to-upper 40s, dipping down to around 35 — but no lower — overnight.

"All you guys are gonna see is rain," forecaster Vaughn Smith said.

Smith said any flurries or sleet would likely fall north of Interstate 20.

"I'm really, truly thinking more like a line from Carrollton to Atlanta to Athens is probably as far south as it's gonna go," he said. "The good stuff will be across northeast Georgia."

As the rain blows in from the Gulf of Mexico this morning, Smith said the Macon area could get anywhere from an inch to an inch and a half by Thursday morning.

"It will be a very good rain-producing system," the forecaster said.
