Cherokee County and other portions of northwest Georgia could see a wintry mix of rain and snow in the air during the overnight hours tonight.

At 3:15 Tuesday afternoon, the Cherokee County Emergency Management Agency released a statement on its social media feed, saying snow flurries could mix with light rain across the northwestern portions of Georgia Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.

“Areas that will have the best potential of seeing a few flurries will mainly be between Rome and the northwest suburbs of Atlanta,” the statement said.

According to the National Weather Service office in Peachtree City, rain showers are projected to turn into a mixture of rain and snow showers around 4 a.m., which could last as late as 8 a.m. Wednesday. The chance of precipitation during the overnight hours is forecast at 80%, dropping to 20% later Wednesday morning. Despite the chance of snow, the National Weather Service predicts that little, if any, of the snow will actually accumulate on the ground.
