Dawson under winter weather advisory starting Friday

Cold air could turn rain over to snow as an upper wave moves toward this area, though little or no accumulation is expected in the immediate area.

Snow remained in the forecast for Newton County as of Thursday afternoon, but the area was outside the bounds of a winter weather advisory.

Rain will change to snow late Thursday night and through Friday morning.

Friday: A 20 percent chance of snow after 4 p.m., high near 32.

All rain/snow should come to an end across Acadiana around lunchtime. Anywhere between one to three inches of accumulation is possible.

"The chart gives you what our probability of snow is within a certain range, and it's updated regularly", Hawley says. That's not quite enough to cancel all your plans for, but it's certainly enough to cause some issues on the roads.

Right now we continue to have light scattered showers working across the region as the result of a shortwave moving over the region, so check we have the moisture in the atmosphere.

IMPACT: Temperatures tomorrow morning will be in the 28- to 34-degree range; there could very well be icy travel, especially on bridges and overpasses, during the morning. Check to freezing temperatures. It's important to note that temperatures in the mountains will be below freezing, but they will be farther away from the moisture. Some on the northern edge could see nothing at all, and others on the southern part could see all rain.

Southeast Louisiana hasn't experienced snow accumulation since February 10, 2012, when about 1 inch fell in the Baton Rouge area.

"You can pretreat with the brine up to 48 hours ahead of the storm", said Bill Shelton, Cobb DOT's Road Maintenance Director, in a statement issued by Cobb County government.

Sunday: Partly sunny, high near 32.
