The area may see more measureable snow this week and a slick drive into work Thursday morning despite today's sunny weather in the mid-40s, the National Weather Service predicts.
While much of Wednesday will be cloudy and dry, there is a 40 percent change of rain or snow Wednesday evening, said Kent McMullen, forecaster for the NWS office in Peachtree City.
After midnight Wednesday, he said, "it should be all snow with about an inch of accumulation" up to 7 a.m. Thursday and flurries for a while after that.
But he added that by 9 or 10 a.m. temperatures in the Gainesville area should reach around 40, causing the snow to disappear.
On Thursday night, "any liquid on the ground could freeze" as temperatures dip to about 28, he said.
And that ends this week's blast of winter, he said.
From Friday into Monday when it will be dry, highs will range from the upper 40 to upper 50s, with lows from the upper 20s to 38, he said.
