One note from yesterday that we were not aware of when we sent our note yesterday: Xpress Bus service is not running today. The Cox Shuttle is running its normal schedule.
Atlanta remains under a Winter Weather Advisory until 7 PM tonight. The Advisory calls for snow of up to 1 inch in addition to rain across the broad area. Precipitation should roll though the area from approx. mid morning until early afternoon, then gone.
To the south, Forest Park expects little or no accumulation.
Around .5 of snow at the office.
Woodstock may get up to one inch.
To the east at Conyers, they have a Hazardous Weather outlook, with no snow forecast. They do have wind chills in the 20’s today though, so rainfall on bridges and overpasses may create some issues.
We appear to be getting a break from temperatures today, which should make driving safer in general. As it stands now, we are expected to have temps several degrees above freezing until around 6 PM. That’s good news. The other good news is that winds are expected to create drying of falling moisture. The caveat is that wind chills are expected in the mid 20’s from mid morning-ish all the way through the day and into Wednesday. This could create freezing conditions on bridges and overpasses.
The Advisory mentions that moisture in sheltered or protected areas could freeze overnight. Temps at bus stops in the morning will be in the low 20’s with around a 19-degree wind chill.
Please use your best judgement as you plan your drive today. Be in contact with your supervisor if you need to adjust your schedule.
If you are responsible for a Contractor, please share this information with them…
