It Might Snow in Athens This Weekend


President Snow prepared for the winter weather by stocking up on adult beverages.

Haha, suckers, I already made my bread/milk/whiskey run before posting this, but it might snow on Friday or Saturday.

Clarke and Oconee counties (and points north) are included in a winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service today. The advisory is in effect from 3 p.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday.

Accumulations of up to two inches of snow and one-tenth of an inch of ice are possible. The NWS is warning of hazardous driving conditions, as well as some power outages from trees falling into power lines.

If we do get some winter weather, it won’t last long. Although temperatures are expected to be in the 20s Saturday night, there’s no precipitation in the forecast. Predictions call for sun and a high in the mid-50s on Sunday.
