NWS forecast

There's a slight possibility of light snow in the forecast for Floyd and neighboring counties on Monday.

Floyd County EMA Director Tim Herrington shared the latest predictions late Sunday:

A Special Weather Statement has been issued for the threat of wintry precipitation for portions of north Georgia on Monday morning through early Tuesday morning.

* Overall, the potential for impactful conditions has decreased, with the approaching low-pressure system shifting a little further south, which will limit overall moisture in our area.

* The exact track of the low-pressure system is still uncertain. A shift back towards the north could still happen.

* Temperatures in the lower 30s in north Georgia on Monday morning may allow a mix of rain and snow.

* Temperatures in the low to mid-30s will then return Monday evening into Tuesday morning, although there will be less chance of accumulation with temperatures just above freezing.

* Forecast snow accumulations remain up to 0.5" possible for locations above 1,500 feet, otherwise a trace to light accumulations are possible for areas in far North Georgia.

* The combination of wet roadways (especially where melting snow is present) and temperatures in the low to mid-30s may lead to a few slick spots on bridges and overpasses Tuesday morning.

* At this time, impacts are still expected to remain relatively limited.
