From the National Weather Service:
"For Sunday night through Tuesday... A low pressure system is expected to develop over the northern gulf on Sunday, then track across south Georgia and off the Georgia coast through late Monday. This system will begin spreading moisture into the state Sunday afternoon and continue through at least early Tuesday. At this time, it appears temperature profiles would support the precipitation falling mostly as snow across north and parts of central Georgia from Sunday evening through Monday night or early Tuesday. Widespread accumulations of 1 to 2 inches are possible for areas generally along and north of a La Grange to Monticello to Washington line, with greater amounts of 2 to 4 inches possible in the higher elevations of north Georgia."

ED: Stock up on food as soon as possible and try to stay off the roads. Roswell applies sand only to the main roads of Mountain Park, West Lake and Lakeshore -- with no guarantees to cover all. Roswell does not sand the city's side streets. Roads could be hazardous for a while.

From WSB TV, Friday, December 7, 4 PM update:
At this time, precipitation will begin as all snow Sunday evening and remain predominantly snow through early Monday morning. Initially, areas form carrollton to metro atlanta and Washington will mix with or change over to sleet, limiting accumulations to 3 to 5 inches of snow and sleet. North of this area, accumulations will be higher with 5 to 7 inches expected with the higher elevations remaining all snow, resulting in locally higher accumulation amounts.

From midday Monday through late Monday night, the sleet and snow will transition to freezing rain and drizzle, creating a dangerous situation for area roadways. The system should pull out monday night into Tuesday, but accumulating snow is likely to continue for the higher elevations of north Georgia.

It should be emphasized that this event remains 24 to 36 hours out and that minor deviations in the storm track or temperature profiles could result in more or less winter impacts across the area. Please pay close attention to the latest updates from this office and local media outlets through the weekend on this developing winter storm.
