snow / sleet showers

Post by Caribbean Traveler »

I actually have a little rain and snow mixed for about 1 minute before about 5 minutes of moderate sleet / rain mix this afternoon. this is the second earliest winter precip that I've seen in the ATL. The earliest was on halloween in 1993 when we had 1/2" on snow!

That's pretty interesting!. I't's been cold a few days, but no snow or sleet. I hope it's not another winter like the last one!

After that crazy cold pattern, I doubt that you'll see any more snow or sleet for a while.

No snow or sleet here. It's funny how things work. It now has been mild for a while and no real cold is in the forecast.
