Snow in our forecast next week?

Live Oak — A frontal boundary is forecast to stall over the northern Gulf of Mexico and northeast Florida early next week. Periods of rainfall are expected to develop along and north of this front on Monday and Tuesday. Another blast of arctic air is then expected to plunge into the southeastern United States towards the middle portion of next week. If moisture lingers as some of the long-term computer models suggest, then rain may mix with or change to freezing rain, sleet, or snow on Tuesday night.  At this time, this potential appears to be confined to interior portions of southeast Georgia and northern portions of the Suwannee Valley. However, considerable forecast uncertainty exists this far in advance, and there is also the possibility that rainfall will end before colder temperatures arrive. Temperatures may rapidly fall by early Wednesday morning, which could result in slick roadways of our region. Additional hard freezes are possible on Wednesday and Thursday nights next week as a cold air mass persists over our region. 

Impacts:  

Rapidly falling temperatures and the potential for wintry precipitation may result in icy roadways on Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Elevated roadways, bridges, and overpasses will be at highest risk.

Temperatures:

Falling into the 30s on Tuesday night, with possible below freezing temperatures by Wednesday morning over interior southeast Georgia and northern portions of the Suwannee Valley. Multiple nights of below freezing temperatures possible region-wide beginning Wednesday.

The National Weather Service will continue to monitor forecasts for early to mid next week, and will provide updates as needed. Please reference the additional resources below for more information.
