The National Weather Service in Peachtree City today issued a winter storm advisory, watch, and warning for north and much of central Georgia...along and north of a line from Hamilton...to Warner Robins...to Louisville [Georgia].

They cover the period from 7 pm this evening through Thursday morning. The forecasted hazard types are mainly snow with some sleet. There could be several inches of snow in some of the affected areas during this time frame. The snow is expected to accumulate on roads making for hazardous driving conditions Monday night and Tuesday.
