…Hazardous Travel Conditions Possible Monday…
An upper level storm system will move through the area early Monday into Monday afternoon. This will slowly spread
precipitation into the far northwest portions Monday morning and then into the Atlanta metro sometime between mid morning and early afternoon. At this time there continues to be much uncertainty on the start time of this precipitation as well as the eastward
What is becoming more certain is that the cold air we have been experiencing will remain in place as the precipitation begins.
This would result in the rain freezing on contact with most surfaces including area roadways. Although amounts are expected to remain light, any freezing rain accumulations at all would create a glaze on roadways making for hazardous travel conditions.
Although timing remains quite uncertain, preparations should be made for poor travel conditions as early as Monday morning.
