Snow? Maybe. Accumulation? Unlikely.

Lamar and Pike counties are right along the rain-snow demarcation line for winter weather forecast for the area Wednesday. Models are changing hourly and residents – particularly those who commute to Atlanta – should pay attention to changing forecasts. WEDNESDAY AM UPDATE: As of 7:30 a.m., it still appears all local precipitation will be of the liquid only variety but the system bears watching. Southern Crescent Tech has closed all locations today as a precaution. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for areas along and north of a line from Newnan to Athens from 10 a.m. Wednesday to 10 a.m. Thursday. The official local forecast calls for rain and snow here before 1 p.m. Wednesday then just rain from 1-3 p.m. Rain and snow return to the forecast from 3 p.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday. At present, accumulation here is very unlikely. Just north of us, however, forecasts call for more snow than rain and some accumulation. Either way, any issues will be shortlived as temperatures move into the low to mid 50s Thursday through Sunday. Long range forecasts call for a wet but warm day Monday with a high near 70.
