Over the last week, meteorologists have been preparing Atlantans for the first snowfall of the year. As the snowflakes began to dust the streets Friday morning, school districts and businesses began announcing early dismissals.
Snow in many areas of far North Georgia is already exceeding 2 to 3 inches, and snow totals could increase to more than 4 inches.
“So the snow is falling faster than it is melting,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said.
Projected snowfall amounts remain at 2 to 4 inches in metro Atlanta. In Kennesaw, snow is still under 1 inch, Channel 2 reported.
