When Atlanta drivers may want to be off the roads in face of snow

Meteorologists expect that metro Atlanta will see snow Tuesday evening. As such, drivers on the southside of the metro area should plan to be off the roads by 7 or 8 p.m., Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz suggested.

Rain, which is possible as early as 5 p.m., may change to light snow after 7 or 8 p.m., according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan.

Snow showers could continue through 3 or 4 a.m. Wednesday. The city could get up to an inch of snow.

“It will turn very cold tomorrow with morning lows in the teens (wind chills below zero) and stay below freezing through the day tomorrow and into Thursday morning; so whatever falls, is going to stick around through early Thursday,” Monahan said.

Locals don't need to reach back too far to remember the last time they were excited by such weather. Dec. 8 saw enough snow to close popular attractions such as the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Georgia Aquarium and even the Clermont Lounge.
