    I remember that 1979 storm. We had moderate sleet for a good 20 hours. 2m temps were low '20's for the duration. Very strong CAD!

    FFC is monitoring the situation tomorrow. 231 PM EST WED FEB 5 2014 ...FAST MOVING SYSTEM TO BRING POTENTIAL WINTER WEATHER TO AREA THURSDAY EVENING... OVERVIEW... AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI AND ALABAMA THURSDAY MORNING AND GRADUALLY SPREAD MOISTURE NORTHWARD ACROSS THE LOCAL FORECAST AREA THURSDAY AFTERNOON INTO THURSDAY EVENING. THIS WILL LEAD TO LIGHT RAIN DEVELOPING FROM COLUMBUS TO MACON INITIALLY BY 10 AM TO NOON. FROM THERE...IT WILL SPREAD NORTHWARD TO START IN THE ATLANTA METRO DURING THE EARLY AFTERNOON HOURS. AT THE ONSET OF PRECIPITATION...THE TEMPERATURES WILL BE IN THE LOWER 40S WHICH WILL RESULT IN JUST A COLD RAIN. HOWEVER...AS THE RAIN CONTINUES...THE TEMPERATURES WILL FALL WITH LIGHT SNOW MIXING IN WITH THE RAIN ALONG AND NORTH OF A LA GRANGE TO ATHENS LINE AND UP TO THE ATLANTA METRO DURING THE EVENING HOURS THURSDAY. NORTH OF THE METRO AND INCLUDING THE MOUNTAINS...THE PRECIPITATION WILL BE MAINLY SNOW BUT AMOUNTS ARE EXPECTED TO BE VERY LIGHT. ALL THE PRECIPITATION WILL END BY LATE THURSDAY NIGHT WITH COLDER TEMPERATURES MOVING IN ITS WAKE. IMPACTS... AT THIS POINT...THIS LOOKS TO BE A FAR DIFFERENT SCENARIO THAN LAST WEEK WITH TEMPERATURES REMAINING ABOVE FREEZING WHILE THE PRECIPITATION IS FALLING. ALSO...LIGHTER AMOUNTS OF PRECIPITATION WILL FURTHER LIMIT ANY ACCUMULATION POTENTIAL. BASED ON THESE FACTORS...WE ARE GOING WITH LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION FOR MOST ALL AREAS WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE HIGHER ELEVATIONS OF THE MOUNTAINS WHERE A DUSTING IS POSSIBLE. BY FAR...THE BIGGEST POTENTIAL IMPACT WILL BE THE BLACK ICE THURSDAY NIGHT AS SUB FREEZING TEMPERATURES RUSH IN AND RESIDUAL WET ROADWAYS BECOME SLICK DUE TO ICE. THIS THREAT COULD PERSIST INTO FRIDAY MORNING WITH TEMPERATURES NOT EXPECTED TO RISE ABOVE FREEZING UNTIL 10 AM. SUMMARY...THIS IS A RAPIDLY EVOLVING WINTER WEATHER EVENT WITH THE SCOPE REMAINING UNCERTAIN. WE WILL BE VIGOROUSLY INSPECTING THE LATEST DATA TO COME IN THIS EVENING TO DETERMINE SNOW AMOUNTS IF ANY ACROSS THE AREA AS WELL AS POTENTIAL IMPACTS FOR THURSDAY NIGHT AND FRIDAY TRAVEL.
