Winter Storm Watch in effect Tuesday and Wednesday

Written by  Monday, 27 January 2014 10:25

  An arctic air mass will move into the area behind a cold front tonight and the Bulloch County Emergency Management Agency is advising people to be prepared.   Low pressure is expected to develop along the front off the southeast U.S. coast Tuesday into Wednesday, possibly lingering into Thursday.  Precipitation is forecast to overspread much of the area Tuesday and linger through Wednesday night. With cold air in place, accumulating snow and possibly even freezing rain is becoming increasingly likely


The storm could result in some snow or sleet and possibly some freezing rain.  It's too early to determine amounts at this time given uncertainty in the extent of cold air that will be in place.  However, accumulating snow/sleet and/or freezing rain is an increasing possibility, and even significant accumulations could occur.

 

  Frozen precipitation could begin across parts of the area as early as Tuesday morning, but more likely sometime during the day Tuesday.  Snow, sleet and/or freezing rain could then continue through Wednesday evening.

 

  All of southeast Georgia could be affected to some extent.  More snow and ice is expected across inland areas where snow amounts of 2-4 inches will be possible along with 1/2 to 1 inch of icr.  Closer to the coast, snow amounts of 1-2 inches with ice accumulations of 1/4 to 1/2 inch are likely.  Slightly lesser amounts are expected along the Georgia coast.
