Weather Week in Coweta: Possible snow event, then cold


From Staff Reports

A Winter Storm Watch will take effect Tuesday at 4 a.m. for most of North Georgia including Coweta County. The Watch is scheduled to end at 10 p.m.

A fast-moving cold front with the possibility of snow accumulations is the reason for the Watch. The Watch area is mainly along and north of a line from Franklin to Jonesboro to Gainesville.
