Episode Narrative A surface low pressure area was moving northeast through the eastern Gulf. A deep upper trough dominated the eastern United States. An arctic front was moving southeast from the Ohio Valley and western Tennessee Valley. As the surface low pressure area tracked toward the northeast Gulf in advance of the Arctic front, moisture spread over a cold air mass resulting in snow across north Georgia and rain across central Georgia. Most of the measurable snow fell within a narrow approximately 50 mile wide area from LaGrange in west central Georgia to near Gainesville in northeast Georgia. Snowfall amounts were mostly around one inch, with a few 1.50 to 2.00 inch amounts observed across the northern suburbs of Atlanta.
Snowfall amounts of 0.50 inch or greater by county were Carroll - 1.00, Cherokee - 1.50, Clayton - 1.00, Cobb - 1.00, Coweta - 1.00, Dawson - 0.50, DeKalb - 1.00, Douglas - 1.25, Fayette - 1.00, Forsyth - 2.00, Fulton - 1.75, Gwinnett - 0.50, Hall - 0.50, Harris - 1.00, Heard - 0.50, Henry - 1.25, Lumpkin - 0.50, Meriwether - 1.00, Newton - 0.50, Oconee - 0.50, Paulding - 1.00, Pike - 1.00, Polk - 1.00, Rockdale - 1.00, Spalding - 1.00, Troup - 1.00, Union - 0.50, White - 1.50. Several other surrounding counties reported a trace of snow, and several counties also had a trace of ice pellets or sleet as well.
Event Narrative Snowfall of 1.0 inch was observed.
