Responding to someone on Twitter, Channel 2's Brian Monahan said, "There's not a lot of moisture with (the snow storm) — so it's all light/showery. Not heavy. And yes, a lot of it will break up as it moves into north GA, but still enough for some issues."

The low temperature for Wednesday could be 16 degrees in metro Atlanta, with wind chills making it seem around minus 7 degrees.
