Bit of Snow to Skirt Atlanta Thursday Evening

While one winter storm after another hits areas from the southern Plains to the Midwest and the East into next week, heavy snow is forecast to avoid Atlanta.

Temperatures will fluctuate from one day to the next around Atlanta through the end of this week and could touch 60 degrees on Saturday.

A sneaky, moisture-starved storm will brush parts of northern Georgia, upstate South Carolina, northern and western North Carolina and southeastern Virginia Thursday night with a bit of snow and wintry mix.

The system is moving too fast to bring heavy snow but enough can fall to coat the ground.

The nicest day of the week is likely to be Friday, when the sun will be out at times and temperatures will climb well into the 50s.

Even though the bulk of the wintry weather with the train of storms will stay north of Atlanta into next week, there is the potential for ripple-effect flight delays as the storms will hit the major hubs of Chicago, New York, Philadelphia and Boston with snow or a wintry mix.

A weak storm moving in this weekend could bring some snow to part of the southern Appalachians and ski country.
