Snowmen leftovers continued to melt on the side of the road Monday, but for the first time in what may seem like weeks, sunny days are ahead.
The National Weather Service forecast calls for partly sunny skies today and mostly sunny skies Wednesday through Friday.
The weather service late Monday, though, were calling for a slight chance of flurries early this morning.
After 3 inches of snow fell on Hall and surrounding counties Friday, a break from wintry precipitation may be welcome news to many.
January saw 6.1 inches of precipitation, according to data from the National Weather Service. And February has racked up about 3.5 inches so far. Those numbers are near average for winter. But 3 inches of snow in February is not normal; the average snowfall for the month is 0.4 inches. The average snowfall for January is 1.1 inches.
A threat of snow and ice has become a near weekly occurrence for North Georgia, but for at least a few days the sun will shine and it may even warm up by the end of the week.
Tuesday has a forecast high of only 35 degrees, but temperatures are expected to hit 43 on Wednesday, 49 on Thursday and 54 on Friday. The average high for February is 43.
By Friday night, though, there’s that now familiar slight chance of snow.
