Snow is out but sleet is in the updated forecast for the Hall County area.

This afternoon's National Weather Service forecast now calls for occasional rain and sleet, turning to all rain after 4 a.m. Up to one-fourth of an inch of rain could fall before 1 p.m. Tuesday.

Today's high temperature is expected to hit 48 and Tuesday's high will be near 45.

Winter could have a bigger bite in the North Georgia mountains, as part of an area extending from Summerville in Northwest Georgia.

Snow and sleet is likely on Tuesday in Cleveland and farther north, with an inch or snow possible, according to the Peachtree City-based weather agency.

More than an inch of snow is possible in Hiawassee, which is close to the Georgia border with North Carolina.

Teri Pope, spokeswoman for the Georgia Department of Transportation's Gainesville office, said the DOT will have crews reporting overnight in Banks, Dawson, Habersham, Lumpkin, Rabun, Stephens, Towns, Union and White counties.

"All other counties will be on call and will come in overnight if conditions warrant," she said.

The DOT will work "to keep at least one passable lane in each direction open on state routes and two passable lanes in each direction on interstates," Pope said.

Conditions are expected to improve throughout the region on Wednesday, with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s.
