March could arrive like a lion overnight with a possible wintry mix of precipitation in some Northeast Georgia counties.
The National Weather Service is calling for a chance of light snow, sleet or freezing rain in the region as a quick-moving system brings showers to the area while temperatures drop near freezing overnight.
Though little accumlation is expected, any ice that does fall could make bridges and overpasses slick and highway travel treacherous.
The counties affected include Lumpkin, White, Dawson, Towns, Pickens, Union, Gilmer and Fannin.
A freeze warning is in effect for those areas until 10 a.m. Saturday.
In Gainesville and Hall County, light rain is likely overnight into Saturday morning but temperatures are expected to remain in the mid-30s. Skies should clear later in the day with a high of 55 and overnight lows in the mid 40s. Sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s are forecast for Sunday.
