Winter Storm Watch NGA 012819

A strong cold front will bring the potential for accumulating snow to north Georgia and black ice to both north and central Georgia for Tuesday, Jan. 29, with possible travel impacts as well as cold temperatures lingering into Wednesday, Jan. 30.  

A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from 4 AM - 10 PM Tuesday for much of north Georgia. Please refer to the graphic for a map of areas under the Winter Storm Watch.

  • Snow: Up to 2" of snow is expected within the watch area with localized higher totals possible in the higher elevations of north Georgia.
  • Black Ice: Black ice will be possible even in areas that receive little to no snow accumulation as temperatures drop below freezing through the day Tuesday.
  • Wind Chills: Wind chills will drop into the low to mid teens across much of the area with single digits expected in the North Georgia mountains late Tuesday into Wednesday morning.
  • Gusty Winds: Winds will rapidly increase behind the cold front during the day Tuesday and persist into Tuesday night. Expect northwest winds around 15-20 mph with gusts up to 25-30 mph.
