Cedartown dodged the “ice bullet”; more winter weather chances Fri

While Cedartown and Polk County may have missed the winter weather on Wednesday, forecasters are predicting a better shot of sleet and snow for late Friday night and into Saturday.

“The National Weather Service is looking at late Friday as a possible wintry mix,” said Polk County Public Safety Director Randy Lacey.

Just trace amounts of sleet fell in the area Wednesday morning before turning over to a steady cold rain for the afternoon, with the temperature hovering near 35º.

A Winter Storm Warning has already been issued for the Northeast Georgia Mountains and additional advisories and warnings could be issued for the rest of North Georgia as the time approaches.
