Forecast in Hall still includes possibility of snow through noon Dec. 10

Hall County is not out of the woods yet with the winter weather system passing through the area.

It dodged the ice, slick roads and widespread power outages authorities feared as part of a winter weather warning that had been issued earlier this weekend by the National Weather Service.

That warning was later downgraded to a winter weather advisory, with area officials reporting quiet conditions Sunday, Dec. 9.

Also, roads were clear, as residents got a reprieve from rain that otherwise saturated yards on Saturday.

But Sunday afternoon, the weather service put Hall in an advisory beginning at 7 p.m. and lasting until noon Monday, Dec. 10.

The advisory includes a chance for light snow with up to a half-inch accumulation and overnight temperatures near freezing.

“This could cause refreezing of the roads tonight,” the advisory states. “With light snow moving   across the area tonight, roads could become slick and hazardous.”

Jackson EMC, which was fighting early Sunday to restore power to some 4,000 members in its 10-county service area, said in a statement, “As the weather continues to be a threat in our area, we are monitoring the situation, and we will continue to send updates on any outages and our restoration efforts.”

The utility was reporting no outages Sunday afternoon.

Rain could stay in the Hall area through Monday night, but the high temperature on Monday could hit 42 degrees, according to the weather service.
