A winter weather punch: Northeast Georgia walloped with snow (with photos)
Most road hazards have melted away with sunny skies and temperatures above freezing today following a Friday blanketing of snow, but officials say a few slick spots remain.

About 3 inches of snow fell in the Gainesville area Friday afternoon and night, according to the National Weather Service.

While there were dozens of minor car accidents in Hall County as a result of the slippery conditions Friday, no serious injuries were reported.

The melted snow slush that froze overnight and created problem spots on area roads this morning has mostly evaporated, though officials urged motorists to remain cautious.

Georgia Department of Transportation spokeswoman Teri Pope said road crews were still out spreading rock and salt in the 21-county Northeast Georgia district today.

"We still want to urge caution on bridges and shady spots, where we are continuing to find black ice," Pope said this afternoon.

Today's high temperature should reach about 42 degrees, according to the weather service.

Tonight should be mostly cloudy with lows in the mid-20s. Sunday's forecast calls for mostly cloudy conditions with a 40 percent chance of rain in the afternoon and highs in the mid-40s.

Some isolated snow flurries could return late Sunday, but no significant accumulation is expected.
