Much of central and north Georgia was placed under another winter storm watch Monday. That watch has now been expanded and stretches into southeast Georgia, and now includes Bulloch County.
Bulloch Public Safety/Emergency Management Agency Director Ted Wynn said his office participated in a conference call with the National Weather Service Monday morning. The time frame discussed was between Wednesday morning and early Thursday morning. At that time Bulloch County was not included. However just above us, Jenkins and Screven…were.
As the day progressed Monday the weather conditions began to change and by mid afternoon the Winter Storm Watch area had been extended to include Bulloch County. Another briefing from the National Weather Service is scheduled for today. Wynn said he will have the ESF partners there in order to make any necessary decisions for the local area.
The National Weather Service said it will be much cooler today with highs in the mid 40’s and rain likely. Rain and freezing rain is possible after midnight with temperatures falling into the mid 30’s . Freezing rain is possible Wednesday, Wednesday night and Thursday. Conditions will improve Friday with partly sunny skies and temperatures in the lower 60’s.
Wynn advises everyone to be prepared.
