Expect a wet, windy Super Bowl Sunday with possibility of snow/wintry mix in parts of north Georgia

The big question all week is: Will there be snow this weekend? 

The FOX 5 Storm Team is currently tracking a complex weather system that will bring mostly rain, but there could be a changeover in some areas early Sunday morning.

A wind advisory was issued until 7 a.m. Sunday morning. Gusts of up to 40 mph are expected.

There is a chance for some rain to turn to snow in the highest elevations of the North Georgia mountains.  However, residents of metro Atlanta can breathe easy knowing there is not a winter weather risk for the area. Temperatures are expected well above freezing Saturday night into Sunday morning.

The best chances of snow will be in the mountains at elevations of over 2,500 feet.

Those areas could see up to two inches of snow which could impact some travel.

Travel issues are not a concern for those closer to Atlanta, other than ponding from the rain. But a light dusting of less than an inch of snow cannot be ruled out. Still, the FOX 5 Storm Team says any snow will melt on contact.

Meanwhile, this system is expected to dump upwards of two to four inches of rain and could cause some minor flooding in some areas.
