Light snow could blow around Friday night

During the January 2014 snow event, temperatures were in the 17- to 21-degree range when the snow was falling, and the ice accretion process on roads is radically different when it is that cold (we all learned the hard way!).

Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for parts of the area Friday where brief, minor accumulations are possible.

After 10am temperatures will start to warm back to the lower 40s causing the snow to turn back over to rain.

The windy conditions could continue Saturday morning, with another half-inch or less of snow possible, before 7 a.m.

"You can pretreat with the brine up to 48 hours ahead of the storm", said Bill Shelton, Cobb DOT's Road Maintenance Director, in a statement issued by Cobb County government. Some of our models are hinting at a final push of moisture that swings through overnight Friday into Saturday morning.

Sunday: Partly sunny, high near 32.
