It likely won’t stop the school buses or jam the freeways, but the words “wintry mix” and “black ice” again are in the forecast for the Gwinnett County area.

According to the National Weather Service, a “mix of sprinkles and flurries” of snow will be possible after sunset on Thursday (Feb. 6). Temperatures will remain above freezing during the snowfall, the statement said.

However, with temps falling into the 20s before sunrise Friday, the threat of black ice will be present.

It was just a week ago that a snowfall of about two inches led to freeway gridlock in metro Atlanta, although roadways in Gwinnett County were not so affected. The scenario of children sleeping in schools and motorists being trapped in their cars promped an apology from Gov. Nathan Deal. Also, the governor since has appointed a task force to help prevent such errors in judgment in the future.
