1/12/18

(Cleveland)- We have some weather alerts for north Georgia this morning.  The National Weather Service has issued a Dense Fog Advisory in effect until 9 AM. Most of Northeast Georgia is included in the advisory and visibilities could be reduced to a quarter of a mile or less.

The reduced visibility will result in difficult driving conditions.

After we get through the fog advisory Friday morning we will see a rainy day with 100 percent chance of precipitation and forecasters say slick roadways are possible Friday night due to light wintery mix and black ice. 

Forecasters say on the back side of a storm system that will bring showers and  thunderstorms to the area today, cold air will rush in during the evening hours. Over portions of North Georgia, just enough precipitation will hang on to allow for a brief transition to light sleet and snow showers along and north of a Rome to  Blairsville line.

]Accumulations in this region will be light averaging only a dusting to a couple tenths of an inch.  The weather service also advises that the residual wet roadways that may freeze into the  overnight hours with the rapid temperature drop expected. 

Strong  winds will help to dry out some roadways but wind  sheltered locations and normally prone elevated surfaces, like bridges and overpasses,  could  experience black ice making for hazardous travel conditions late  Friday evening through Saturday morning.
