Another winter storm heads to north Georgia

ATLANTA -- A winter storm watch has been posted for most of metro Atlanta, calling for as much as 2 inches of snow Monday night into Tuesday.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the winter storm watch, which was issued just before 5 a.m. Sunday, goes into effect at 7 p.m. Monday and continues through 1 p.m. Tuesday for areas of the state along and north of a line from Carrollton to Atlanta to Homer.

“The problem we got into a week and a half ago was that the snow came in around mid-day,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said. “But it looks like on Monday, we’re going to get through the day with no problems. As we move into Monday evening, a different story.”

Things could get even worse as Tuesday night moves into Wednesday, with the possibility of freezing rain or ice — though it’s far too early to be sure.

“You want to prepare for that possibility,” Nitz said. “It’s not a guarantee yet, but it’s certainly a very real possibility.”

The Weather Service is forecasting snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches, with 2 to 3 inches across the mountains and up to 4 inches in the northeast corner of the state.

Just tell Marion Barry and Barack Obama that all the snow is cocaine and it will all be gone within minutes. At least in theory.
