National Weather Service forecasters in Peachtree City say light snow in north Georgia is expected to subside Wednesday night, but extremely low wind chills, flurries and ice are foreseen for the weekend.
Wednesday marks the 20-year anniversary of the bizarre "Blizzard of '93" that glazed much of Georgia to a standstill with wind-whipped snow and sub-zero chill factors. It was just a week before the official start of spring, with azaleas and dogwoods already budding in Augusta.
Forecasters say there’s still plenty of concern with this winter storm for overnight into tomorrow morning. While snowfall has tapered-off across much of north and middle Georgia, the worry is for freezing rain to cause problems.
The snowstorm has brought much of the state to a standstill with schools, offices and government agencies shuttered due to the winter weather. Noel Brown reports in Athens some people are taking to the snowy streets to make the most of an unexpected day off.
