Winter weather in outlook for Sunday, Monday

Area residents might want to keep an eye out on the weather later this weekend and into early next week. The National Weather Service Friday afternoon called for the potential for wintry conditions that include rain, sleet and snow beginning Sunday afternoon then changing to sleet and snow for much of Monday. Accumulations of up to two inches are expected.

The extended forecast calls for a 30 percent chance of rain and snow after 1 p.m. on Sunday, with daytime high of 37 degrees and a nighttime low of 29 degrees. The chance of precipitation is expected to increase Sunday night to 80 percent, with rain changing to sleet and snow.

The outlook late Sunday and continuing on Monday calls for a 70 percent chance for a wintry mix of freezing rain and sleet with a Monday daytime high of 32 degrees. Accumulations of up to two inches or more are possible for south metro Atlanta and parts of central Georgia along a line from LaGrange to Monticello to Washington.

The situation Monday night is currently forecast to include a slight chance of freezing rain with a low around 29 degrees.

The Tuesday is expected to be near 35 degrees with mostly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow its off to Kroger on the trusty cart for those staples of life: bread, milk, bacon and beer. Certainly, not in any particular order.

It is an NFL playoff weekend you know.

Did someone mention snow?

History tells me that the wxguys, while well intentioned,just dont get it right a large percentage of the time. Current Doppler Radar doesn't show much possibility of such an event happening here, but things surely change.

Of course you're right, but one simply cannot afford to run out of beer.

Chances are...

we'll all be home on Monday as the roads are going to be too icy to travel on. Some of us will have power while others will not. Plan accordingly.

All home Monday!

They will now!

If the grocery stores run out of milk and bread and eggs, I plan to trudge through the 2" snow and ice and find a house with some already---eat with them.
If my power is out for days and the water is frozen up I'll go outside to use the bathroom.

Maybe the government will helicopter some unfrozen water bottles in along with some unfrozen eggs and bread!
We should be able to pick up some dead birds and fish along the lake to cook! They are dropping from the sky everywhere.

Personally, I think UFOs are doing it. The sound from their ion engines--jacked up by our magnetism will soon start on cows and pigs and chickens.

Are we sure that Buffalo, NY gets 10-12 feet of snow every year? Or do they all die and new ones from the big city re-populate the place.
I don't see how they could survive otherwise!

Best of luck to all of you, and I do not have any extra milk, bread and eggs at my house.

Just got back from Kroger...

I've lived in the Atlanta area for over 4 decades, and I simply do not understand why people ransack grocery stores upon threat of inclement weather.

Kroger's dairy section was getting picked clean. The aisle that had toilet paper was clogged. Okay, maybe that wasn't the best adjective to use...

..people ransack grocery stores..

Yep, they were thick today at the local Publix in Fytv.

I'm not worring about the snow, it's the forecasted ½ of ice and resulting power outages. The impacted area is so large that power company resources might be stretched rather thin and it could take a while to get power restored.

Would someone please remind

Mother Nature that this is Georgia, not Connecticut? I'm ready to go south. Oh wait, I'm already there. Brrr...
