FORSYTH COUNTY — Big, fat flakes are forecast as the Forsyth County area could get 3 to 4 inches of snowfall between Wednesday and Thursday morning.
A current winter storm watch, running from 10 a.m. Wednesday through 8 a.m. Thursday, could become a warning overnight Tuesday as a cold front moves into the region, bringing heavy precipitation from south of Atlanta to Northeast Georgia, according to information presented by the National Weather Service at a briefing to emergency officials in Hall County.
Snow is predicted to begin accumulating by early afternoon Wednesday, with the thick of it hitting about 7 p.m.
Temperatures are expected to hover between 30 and 34 degrees, depending on snowfall.
But the amount of snow could increase, and forecasters said there is a better than 40 percent probability that counties in northeast Georgia, including Forsyth, could get more than 4 inches.
Forecasters said the snowstorm will undoubtedly impact rush-hour traffic Wednesday afternoon.
