Cold Blast Of Winter Weather Coming To Georgia

Mar 13, 2017

Thankfully, this won't be a case of déjà vu all over again. On this date in 1993, the infamous "Blizzard of 1993" hit Georgia and other parts of the country.

That won't happen today, but a blast of chilly weather is coming.

“We had a cold front move in over the weekend and now we’re getting another reinforcing cold front with some of that cold, Canadian air moving across the eastern half of the U.S.,” said Kent McMullen, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

He said north Georgia could see close to an inch of snow by Tuesday. 

Metro Atlanta will probably get no snow, but heavy winds will bring the chill. 

“It’s going to give us some temperatures to make it feel like it’s in the teens, especially Tuesday morning,” McMullen said.

Highs will be in the upper 40s and low 50s until at least Friday.

Some northern states, like Pennsylvania, could see up to six inches of snow this week.
