Temperatures are dropping in metro Atlanta, and a rain and snow mix is expected to start after midnight.

According to the latest forecast, there is a 60 percent chance of precipitation Friday, and the wintry mix could continue through the afternoon.

“But accumulations (will be less than) 1 inch because it will be continuously melting” on contact, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz said Thursday morning.

The exceptions are grassy areas and elevated surfaces, according to meteorologist Karen Minton.

“Any moisture left on the roads could freeze Saturday morning with temperatures dropping into the mid- and upper 20s,” she said.

The forecast is fluid, and there is no need to panic, according to Channel 2. 

“Do not go to the grocery store and wipe out all the bread and milk because you won’t need it,” Minton said.

There is only a 30 percent chance of precipitation Thursday, and that is expected to come in the form of patchy rain.

“We should stay just above that freezing mark in most cases,” Minton said.

Currently, the temperature is 42 degrees in Atlanta. The high is expected to hit 47.

Come Friday, however, temperatures may not get out of the 30s, according to Channel 2.
