Let The Games Begin

The first week of the new year is now over only 51 left to go. To make sure that we don't get bored with 2k11, it looks like that next week is going one big pain in the ass (and not in a good way). Depending on what news channel or weather website you look at here in Atlanta we could be in for the area of 2-8" of snow Sunday and finishing with a nice wintery mix on Monday. If I was still up in the Boston area I would not be worrying a bit, but this is Atlanta. There are no snow plows here though there might be a few sanding trucks but that's about it. On top of that people drive like fucking morons in just rain. What ever this storm brings it probably make for a really fun time. :-) Damn things are going to get messy.
..WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH MONDAY EVENING FOR NORTH AND CENTRAL GEORGIA...A WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SUNDAY EVENING THROUGH MONDAY EVENING.
AT THIS TIME...PRECIPITATION WILL BEGIN AS ALL SNOW SUNDAY EVENING AND REMAIN PREDOMINANTLY SNOW THROUGH EARLY MONDAY MORNING. MONDAY MORNING...AREAS FROM CARROLLTON TO THE METRO AREA TO ATHENS AND SOUTHWARD WILL TRANSITION TO A FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET MIX WITH THIS ENCOMPASSING A FURTHER NORTHWARD AREA BY THE AFTERNOON. AREAS IN THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS HOWEVER SHOULD REMAIN PREDOMINATELY SNOW. THIS SNOW...FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET MIX WILL CREATE A DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR AREA ROADWAYS. WITH THE TRANSITION FROM SNOW TO FREEZING RAIN AND SLEET THIS WILL LIMIT SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS TO 3 TO 5 INCHES.
PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A WINTER STORM WATCH MEANS THERE IS A POTENTIAL FOR SIGNIFICANT SNOW...SLEET...OR ICE ACCUMULATIONS THAT MAY IMPACT TRAVEL. CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECASTS.
