The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for multiple North Georgia counties and for all of metro Atlanta due to accumulations of ice and snow in the forecast.

While the advisory, which went into effect at 3 a.m. on Tuesday, was scheduled to expire at 7 p.m., it was canceled for metro Atlanta around 1 p.m.

Earlier forecasts predicted parts of the city could receive up to 1.5 inches of snow, but numerous areas saw only a dusting.

Although meteorologists have reported icing concerns as temperatures drop, several locals were still upset about the lack of snow, taking their frustrations to Twitter.


Others called it a “fake snow day” and said the city shut down for no reason.
