Another Snowjam for Atlanta? Winter Storm Watch Issued (Feb. 10-12)

Beware, Gwinnett County and Atlanta. Another winter storm with wintry mix potential is near.

According to the National Weather Service, a Winter Storm Watch is in effect for Monday evening (Feb. 10) through Wednesday morning. It includes Gwinnett and metro Atlanta.

The warning says in part:

*HAZARD TYPES…A MIX OF RAIN…SLEET AND SNOW MONDAY NIGHT…CHANGING BACK TO RAIN TUESDAY AFTERNOON…THEN A MIX OF FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET TUESDAY NIGHT WITH SNOW IN THE MOUNTAINS.

*ACCUMULATIONS…1 TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW WITH 2 TO 4 ACROSS THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS. ICE ACCUMULATIONS WILL BEGIN LATE TUESDAY NIGHT WITH AMOUNTS OF LESS THAN A TENTH OF AN INCH POSSIBLE.

Of course, it was just a couple of weeks ago that similar weather led to freeway gridlock in metro Atlanta.

The latest warning also states:

SNOW WILL ACCUMULATE ON ROADS MAKING FOR HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS MONDAY NIGHT AND EARLY TUESDAY. ICE WILL BEGIN TO ACCUMULATE ON ROADS TUESDAY NIGHT AGAIN MAKING FOR HAZARDOUS DRIVING CONDITIONS.
