Forecasters say arctic air pushing into Georgia could bring scattered snow showers to the mountains and cause some isolated flurries in the state's central region today.

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City says any snowfall Saturday will probably be short-lived. While accumulations of less than an inch are possible in areas with higher elevations, warmer ground temperatures should melt most of it.

In Atlanta, Augusta and other cities below the mountains and north of the gnat line, any snow is likely to be mixed with rain.

High temperatures Saturday across north and central Georgia are expected to hover between 40 degrees in Dalton to 48 degrees in Macon.

Things will get frigid overnight, with temperatures plunging into the mid-20s.
