Paulding County drivers should be cautious when hitting the roads this morning as freezing rain is possible.
The National Weather Service has issued a freezing rain advisory for Paulding and other Georgia counties that will be in effect from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. Though rain is expected, low temperatures could turn it into freezing rain.
A freezing rain advisory means that periods of freezing rain or freezing drizzle could lead to travel difficulties and that drivers should be prepared for slippery roads. Officials say motorists should slow down and use caution while driving in these conditions.
Today’s forecast calls for a 60-percent chance of precipitation, with rain or freezing rain possible this morning—with new ice accumulation of less than a tenth of an inch possible—then rain likely in the afternoon. Today’s high temperature is expected to hit 45 or so under cloudy skies.
Rain is likely tonight, mainly before 9 p.m. Tonight’s low is expected to drop to about 35 degrees.
We should see some sunny skies again on Saturday, with the day’s high approaching 50.
