Special Weather Alert - Possible Wintry Mix Monday

This Special Weather Statement covers Walton and Gwinnett counties, including the cities of Loganville and Grayson.

The National Weather Service at Peachtree City has issued a Special Weather Statement warning of a possible wintry mix Monday night into Tuesday morning. Gwinnett and Walton counties are included in this alert.

According to Weather.com, the strong artic high which has affected the area for the last two days will gradually shift east, allowing for moisture to return by late Monday. Enough cold air is expected to be in place to result in a short period of sleet or snow, rain mix. No accumulations are expected, but there is still some uncertainty with the forecast so the NWS is encouraging everyone to check frequently. Patch will stay on top of the alerts and advise of any changes.

Greetings from southwest Missouri. 2 Inches of snow on the ground here, still coming down. If this is what's heading towards Georgia, better go get in line for the milk and bread...

Kinda...the time to tear down was last summer. Now is the time to build back up! We are doing some work on a new house. Looks like today might be a snow day...

The leading edge of the precip is entering Alabama right now. We still have dew points around 16º F or so which means our air is very dry. As the moisture falls into the dry air it evaporates, the evaporation process further cools the air until the air gets closer to saturation. I'm at 55º F right now and the temperature has just started to fall, I was hoping the clouds would get here AFTER the sun set in order to take advantage of radiational cooling but it looks like that might not happen. So we'll see how far the temps fall before the clouds cover us for the evening. Everyone is starting to get more excited about the system arriving this weekend. The setup is looking more and more favorable for a potential snow situation here. More to come about this.
