New models maintain minimal amounts of snow on Tuesday.

As an arctic front moves through this week, we have a chance of snow Tuesday

As an arctic front moves through Tuesday, Severe Weather Team 2 says we have a chance for light snow.

Severe Weather Team 2's Katie Walls says light snow showers are a possibility on Tuesday mainly in the evening. Forecast accumulation remains minimal at less than 1-inch.

Our team of meteorologists are tracking the cold weather. The latest models and updates on wsbtv.com and Channel 2 Action News This Morning beginning at 4:30 a.m.


What viewers can only get on Channel 2 Action News: 

  • Updated hour-by-hour wind and wind chill forecast. 
  • Updated jet stream and temperature forecast showing the persistent arctic/polar air moving over north Georgia. 
  • Updated hour-by-hour cloud and precipitation forecast showing the potential for mix/snow showers across north Georgia on Tuesday afternoon/evening. 

This forecast comes after a Saturday of subfreezing weather and penetrating wind.

With a high of 39 forecast, that reading did not top freezing until after noon. The average for this date is 52 degrees.

However, the temperature is only part of the story. Wind gusts of up to 30 mph will make the weather feel about 10 to 15 degrees colder than the actual temp.

“It is going to be a very cold next five to seven days across north Georgia,” Monahan said. 

A wind chill advisory was in effect for parts of North Georgia for wind chills near 0 degrees.

  • NASA's latest nail-biting drama was far from orbit as the Senate narrowly confirmed President Donald Trump's choice of a tea party congressman to run the space agency in an unprecedented party-line vote. In a 50-49 vote Thursday, Oklahoma Rep. James Bridenstine, a Navy Reserve pilot, was confirmed as NASA's 13th administrator, an agency that usually is kept away from partisanship. His three predecessors — two nominated by Republicans — were all approved unanimously. Before that, one NASA chief served under three presidents, two Republicans and a Democrat. The two days of voting were as tense as a launch countdown. A procedural vote Wednesday initially ended in a 49-49 tie — Vice President Mike Pence, who normally breaks a tie, was at Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida — before Arizona Republican Jeff Flake switched from opposition to support, using his vote as leverage to address an unrelated issue. Thursday's vote included the drama of another delayed but approving vote by Flake, a last-minute no vote by Illinois Democrat Tammy Duckworth — who wheeled onto the floor with her 10-day-old baby in tow — and the possibility of a tie-breaker by Pence, who was back in town. NASA is a couple years away from launching a new giant rocket and crew capsule to replace the space shuttle fleet that was retired in 2011. 'I look forward to working with the outstanding team at NASA to achieve the president's vision for American leadership in space,' Bridenstine said in a NASA release after the vote. Democrats opposing Bridenstine said his outspoken divisiveness, earlier rejection of mainstream climate change science and lack of space experience made him unqualified. Republicans praised him as a qualified war hero. 'His record of behavior in the Congress is as divisive as any in Washington, including his attacks on members of this body from his own party,' Florida Democrat Bill Nelson said. 'It's hard to see how that record will endear, and by extension NASA, him to Congress, and most importantly, endear him to the American people. ' Sen. Edward Markey, a Massachusetts Democrat, cited past Bridenstine comments that rejected mainstream climate science, invoking the movie 'Apollo 13.' 'Houston, we have a problem,' Markey said. 'NASA's science, NASA's mission and American leadership will be in jeopardy under Congressman Bridenstine's leadership.' During his confirmation hearing, Bridenstine said he acknowledges that global warming is real and man-made, but wouldn't say that it was mostly human-caused, as the overwhelming majority of scientists and scientific literature do. And Bridenstine told Nelson, 'I want to make sure that NASA remains, as you said, apolitical.' Texas Republican Ted Cruz praised the NASA nominee as 'a war hero.' 'NASA needs a strong leader and it will have that strong leader in Jim Bridenstine,' Cruz said. Sean O'Keefe, who was NASA chief under President George W. Bush and was confirmed unanimously, said the close vote 'is a consequence of an erosion of comity in the Congress, particularly in the Senate. Political fights will always break out, but now most policy choices are more likely to emerge based on the party with the majority than the power of the idea.' Alan Ladwig, a top NASA political appointee under Democrats, said this was a case of both party politics and a divisive nominee who doesn't accept science. __ Associated Press writers Mary Claire Jalonick and Lisa Mascaro contributed to this report. ___ Follow Seth Borenstein on Twitter at @borenbears .

  • Kirby Smart has called for fans to fill Sanford Stadium on Sunday for the annual G-day game.
  • The Justice Department has agreed to provide Congress with copies of several memos written by former FBI Director James Comey. That's according to a person familiar with the agreement. The person declined to be named because the documents had not yet been sent to Congress. The move comes as House Republicans threatened to subpoena the documents and criticized department officials. Comey revealed last year that he had written the memos after conversations with President Donald Trump, who later fired him. Justice officials had allowed some lawmakers to view the memos, but had never provided copies to Congress. Last week, three House chairmen demanded the memos by Monday. The Justice Department asked for more time, and the lawmakers agreed.
