The snow had ended by late-morning across metro Atlanta, but forecasters said flurries could continue into the afternoon across the mountain counties.
"The highest peaks of the mountains above 2,500 to 3,000 feet could see a light dusting of snow, but it should not cause significant problems," the Weather Service said in a statement.
An area of precipitation moving into western Georgia from Alabama during the early afternoon was expected to bring only a cold rain to the Atlanta area.
WSB-TV meteorologist Karen Minton said the wintry weather will be short-lived, with spring returning and temperatures rebounding by mid-week.
Minton said temperatures will reach the mid-60s on Tuesday, and the 70s by Wednesday.
