Metro Atlanta could see sleet this weekend and far North Georgia could see more snow this weekend, according to Channel 2 Action News.

“Areas along and north of I-20 could see some sleet as precipitation begins Saturday night,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said. “There will be no impacts (in much of metro Atlanta) as temperatures will be above freezing.”

However, there could be more than one-tenth of inch of accumulation on bridges, overpasses and tree limbs in parts of northern Hall, Habersham and Rabun counties due to sleet and snow changing over to freezing rain, according to Channel 2.

Impacted areas could see the wintry weather between midnight and 9 a.m. Sunday, Minton said.

“Will be keeping an eye on extreme northern Gwinnett,” Minton said. “After 9 a.m., all temperatures will be warm enough for all rain. Rain ends late afternoon.”

There were reports of light snow in Union and Catoosa counties early Friday, and temperatures in Atlanta were 6 degrees lower than they were Thursday.

“Our temperatures are going to stay on the colder side today,” Minton said.

After hitting 64 degrees Thursday, the latest forecast calls for a high of 42 degrees Friday, Channel 2 reported.

Currently, the temperature is 35 degrees.

Wind speeds aren’t helping matters.

Gusts reached 30 mph early Friday, Channel 2 reported. They are expected to drop to 25 mph this afternoon.
