Weather pushes back basketball tournaments

Several high school basketball region tournaments, including four in Class AAAAAA,  have been postponed because of weather, and others might follow suit.

Cobb, Fulton, Cherokee and Forsyth counties have canceled after-school activities because of scattered snow showers. So have Floyd, Fannin, Lumpkin and White counties north of metro Atlanta.

In Clayton and DeKalb counties, outdoor activities were canceled, but indoor activities will continue as planned.

The Region 3-AAAAAA tournament at Hughes in south Fulton County will play four games on Wednesday instead of Tuesday. Region 5-AAAAAA at Etowah in Cherokee County has moved Tuesday's games to Wednesday and Wednesday's games to Thursday.
