Snow in Georgia
February 12, 2010

On Friday, February 12th, precipitation associated with a surface low tracking across the Gulf of Mexico and an upper level short wave tracked across much of north and central Georgia. Light snow began over portions of west Georgia around noontime, then spread eastward through the afternoon before tapering off to flurries by mid evening and dissipating by early Saturday morning.  Snow and slush on the roadways froze overnight leading to hazardous driving conditions late Friday night into Saturday morning.  The map below shows the snowfall amounts across north and central Georgia.
