UNDATED – (WAOK/AJC) A winter storm moved into Georgia from the west, where several inches of snow blanketed some areas of eastern Alabama. By the time it reached Georgia, the storm had lost some of its intensity, dumping up to an inch of snow in some areas of Polk and Floyd counties. Forecasters say as temperatures drop tonight, some of the precipitation may freeze, especially on roads west of the city of Atlanta, and on bridges and overpasses. Most of the snow accumulation is expected in the mountains of north Georgia, but other areas, south of there, could see more of a wintry mix. Many schools in the north western tier of the state dismissed school early Thursday, and may cancel classes altogether, on Friday. Most of north central Georgia, including Bartow and Cherokee counties, remains under a Winter Weather Warning, that will extend into Friday morning. Most of metro Atlanta, which includes the surrounding counties, remained under a Winter Weather Advisory, Thursday evening. It is expected to warm up on Friday, but it will be later in the day.
