Threat of black ice, wintry mix continues across north Georgia

A Winter Weather advisory has been issued from Friday at 7 p.m. to 10 a.m. Saturday for portions of eastern and east central Georgia, which includes Oglethorpe and Greene counties.

The advisory was later expanded into several metro Atlanta counties including Gwinnett County, Walton County, Rockdale County, and Newton County. 

Other north Georgia counties under the Winter Weather Advisory through 7 a.m. Saturday include Jasper, Barrow, Putnam, Oconee, Morgan, and Clarke counties.  

In addition to the possibility of patchy ice, our far eastern counties could see some snow flurries. Whether this event verifies on the higher end or not, we are still only expecting minor and short-lived impacts.

The moisture quickly exited our area Friday evening ahead of a second blast of cold and dry air that is expected to settle overnight.
