Remember to stay safe, y’all. It’s cold out there!
Whenever there’s a chance of snow in the ATL, the city combusts into a slushy cocktail of chaos and joy. Out of towners wondering why some of us own sleds, kids patiently staring at the clouds, and a lot of smiles if the snow does fall. Of course, snow in the south is a rare occurrence, so perhaps all these things are completely valid.
Lucky for us, if Sunday’s snow fall wasn’t satisfactory enough for y’all. There could be more snow on the way. According to The Weather Channel, “A winter storm could bring more significant snow and ice to parts of the Southeast and southern mid-Atlantic by late this week.”
They continue, “Fresh arctic air supplied by high pressure behind a cold front will engulf much of the central and eastern states during the second half of this week.”
This might be excellent news for a lot of you who love the rarity of snow in the South. However, dangerous conditions are expected to cause disruption across Georgia, especially the North. Icing could contribute to power outages and tree damage in the eastern Carolinas.
Such disruption was seen in North Georgia during winter storm Izzy, with many roads labeled too treacherous to even attempt driving on. The snow didn’t stick here in the ATL, but we did manage to witness a magical snowfall.
So if the weather does take another wintery turn, make sure to stay safe. And have a little fun if you can! Check out our recent round-up of a snow-topped Atlanta, during winter storm Izzy.
