No ice storm for Atlanta

Patches of ice possible from run-off after rain ends this evening

We reported this possibility early Monday morning on 95.5 WSB and I mentioned it in my blog.

Others may be but I am not forecasting Atlanta to be encrusted by sheets of ice tomorrow morning (Tuesday).

The rain is moving out early this evening and there should be sufficient time for a lot of drying overnight in a lot of areas.

Temperatures will fall sharply 1-3 degrees per hour after roughly 2am with all of the region below freezing by 7am with lows of 23-29.

Temps crawl back above freezing in most areas by 1pm or so and fall back below 32 after roughly 7pm give or take.

NO PRECIPITATION expected from the clouds tomorrow (Tuesday) morning in Metro Atlanta.

Water runoff from todays rain that crosses a road from nearby shoulder, grass or forest heading for drainage will freeze.

Any residual moisture on driveways, sidewalks, decks roads or other surfaces that does not evaporate will freeze. But most will dry up with minimal ice or no impactful ice.

Maybe I’ll be wrong so stay tuned for updates.

Listen to Atlanta’s best and most numerous traffic team (only one with airborne coverage) for reports of any icy patches or problem areas on Atlantas Morning News with Scott Slade 430am-9am Tuesday (and every week day).

More weather action to come by Thursday followed by another hard freeze. I’ll “see” you on the radio with details, tune-in 95.5 WSB RADIO.
