OUTLOOK

A frontal system moving into the area on Monday could produce freezing rain over much of west and north GA. A glaze of ice and slick spots on roads are possible between 1AM-1PM Monday which could cause hazardous travel conditions.

...Hazardous Travel Conditions Possible Monday...

An upper level storm system will move through the area early
Monday into Monday afternoon. This will slowly spread
precipitation into the far northwest portions Monday morning and
then into the Atlanta metro sometime between mid morning and early
afternoon. At this time there continues to be much uncertainty on
the start time of this precipitation as well as the eastward
extent.

What is becoming more certain is that the cold air we have been
experiencing will remain in place as the precipitation begins.
This would result in the rain freezing on contact with most 
surfaces including area roadways. Although amounts are expected to
remain light, any freezing rain accumulations at all would create
a glaze on roadways making for hazardous travel conditions. 

Although timing remains quite uncertain, preparations should be 
made for poor travel conditions as early as Monday morning. We 
will be revising this forecast as the event approaches and 
encourage all to stay abreast of latest changes through this 
product as well as local media outlets.
