... Mixture of sleet and light freezing rain possible Thursday morning

any light accumulations. Sleet amounts up to one quarter of an inch
and freezing rain amounts up to one tenth of an inch appear
possible. Locally higher amounts cannot be ruled out. Temperatures

with interests across north Georgia are urged to remain alert for any
changes in later forecasts.
