What a way to start off the work week.

Commuters this morning woke up to rainy conditions, but by 9:30 a.m. the skies were clearing and the National Weather Service canceled a Winter Weather Advisory for much of North Georgia..

Although the clouds are breaking up, the weather service said there remains a slight chance of rain through the early afternoon. Some scattered snow flurries could appear, but no snow accumulation is expected.

Overnight temperatures remained well above freezing. At 6 a.m., the temperature at Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport was 41 degrees.

Cold air began moving into the area this morning, and temperatures had dropped to 35 degree at 9:30 a.m. Temperatures will continue to drop into the low 20s tonight. Winds could be 10 to 15 mph.

If there's some good news, "this is a fast-moving system," said Mike Leery, forecaster with the weather service in Peachtree City.

The 3 inches of snow that fell on Hall and surrounding counties Friday had largely melted away by late Saturday, thanks to sunny skies and temperatures hitting the 40s.

And hazardous road conditions that led to dozens of wrecks had mostly abated, officials said.

Sunday, the ice and snow had all but melted, except in remote areas.

After today's snow, the weather improves for the rest of the week.

The forecast calls for sunny skies, more or less, through Sunday, with temperatures reaching the mid-50s by Friday, according to the weather service.

The next possible precipitation could occur Friday night, with a 20 percent chance for rain.
