Rain and freezing rain will fall in northeast Georgia early Sunday morning.


A winter weather advisory is in effect for northeast Georgia, including the cities of Gainesville, Ellijay, Dahlonega and Hiwawassee.

The advisory does not include Atlanta.

The advisory means ice will make travel difficult in parts of northeast Georgia.

What to expect 

Rain will be moving into Georgia early Sunday morning. At the same time, freezing temperatures are expected in northeast Georgia. The combination of rain and freezing temperatures at the surface is what will produce freezing rain, or ice, in northeast Georgia.


At this point, just a cold rain is expected in Atlanta, with the potential of freezing rain, or ice, northeast of the city.

Gwinnett County

While the greatest potential of freezing rain, or ice, is expected in northeast Georgia, it's possible freezing rain or sleet could be seen in Gwinnett County. With temperatures above freezing, any wintry precipitation in Gwinnett County is not expected to stick. 

When will it end?

Whether you see a cold rain, or freezing rain, all precipitation is expected to end in north Georgia after 1 p.m. Sunday.
