Here We Go Again!

First you have to understand that we’re in Gerogia.  The south.  Then you have to understand that here, one inch of snow is actually a lot of snow.  We don’t care how much snow you consider a lot in Chicago or Detroit because we just don’t get much down here.

It looks like another period that will not be condusive to motorcycle riding here.  Here’s this morning’s update from the National Weather Service:

SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM POSSIBLE FOR SUNDAY NIGHT AND MONDAY…
FOR THE PERIOD SUNDAY THROUGH TUESDAY… A STRONGER WINTER STORM IS EXPECTED TO IMPACT ALL OF NORTH GEORGIA. LOW PRESSURE IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP OVER THE WESTERN GULF OF MEXICO SUNDAY MORNING AND SHIFT EAST THROUGH LATE SUNDAY. AHEAD OF THIS SYSTEM… A COLD AND DRY AIRMASS WILL BE IN PLACE… SETTING THE STAGE FOR A WINTER STORM LOCALLY SUNDAY NIGHT THROUGH MONDAY EVENING. PRECIPITATION WILL END BY TUESDAY EXCEPT FOR LINGERING SNOW ACROSS THE NORTH GEORGIA MOUNTAINS.

IT SHOULD BE EMPHASIZED THAT THIS EVENT REMAINS 36 HOURS OUT AND THAT MINOR DEVIATIONS IN THE STORM TRACK OR TEMPERATURE PROFILES COULD RESULT IN MORE OR LESS WINTER IMPACTS ACROSS THE AREA.

PLEASE PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE LATEST UPDATES FROM THIS OFFICE AND LOCAL MEDIA OUTLETS THROUGH THE WEEKEND ON THIS DEVELOPING WINTER STORM.
