Northeast Georgia Could See Flurries Tomorrow Afternoon

January 16, 2013

It seems that some parts of Northeast Georgia will get a few brief minutes of excitement, or perhaps terror, late tomorrow when snow starts to fall from the sky.

Forecasters don’t seem to think that it’s going to be a big event, and the real concern is focused on the possibility for black ice overnight Thursday.

Terri Pope with the DOT says their crews have a plan for that.

“It focuses primarily on Interstates and multi lane high volume state route, but in northeast Georgia you can not go anywhere without crossing a bridge”, said Pope.

She says to be careful while crossing any bridges because as many know, bridges will ice over before roads do.

So residents in Northeast Georgia, especially those in more northern counties will need to be extra cautious while on the roads tomorrow evening, and early Friday morning.
