The National Weather service has put the majority of North Georgia under a winter weather advisory.

Residents in the area in the northeast area of Georgia can expect snow flurries and light snow showers from Monday morning through Wednesday afternoon. The highest snow accumulation will occur in the mountains of northeast Georgia with some accumulation throughout the metro Atlanta area. Local Athens residents can expect some snow flurries at noon today. The advisory also wanted to warn places where moisture lingers on roadways, as these areas are the most likely to contain patches of black ice.

There will also be a wind chill advisory for much of the area through Thursday morning. Winds are expected to reach gusts of 25 miles per hour. High winds and cold temperatures will reach below 5 degrees.
