Forecast at a Glance
Overnight, a dry cold front raced through plunging temperatures into the teens and bringing clouds to the area. As the cold front moves further from the region today, high pressure builds in and helps to clear skies out for most of the day. This high pressure moves away quickly though, allowing a new area of surface low pressure along with an upper level trough approach on Friday. By the overnight hours, precipitation will overspread the area. Like the last several winter storms, the Athens area will walk a fine line between snow and rain. Precipitation should likely begin as snow overnight, possibly transitioning back to a rain-snow mix as temperatures warm during the day, and then back to snow as precipitation wraps up overnight. Ultimately, a difference in a few degrees will greatly affect any chance at snow accumulations, but the Athens area should still at least see an inch or two by the time precipitation pushes out. Clouds and cooler temperatures will then persist into the start of the work week.
