More rain and even some snow are likely today in the Columbus area, the National Weather Service said Saturday.
A powerful storm should move across central Alabama into southwest Georgia today. The low temperature is expected in the 30s as rainfall turns into a mixture of rain and snow. It should become all snow as the cold air builds from the west.
Snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is possible. The high temperature will be in the 40s with northwest winds gusting at 20 to 30 mph. Snow may accumulate, especially on grassy and exposed surfaces.
With snow and rain in the forecast, the weather service said drivers in Muscogee, Harris, Marion and Chattahoochee counties should be wary of snow, sleet or freezing rain. Watch for slippery roads and limited visibilities.
By tonight, clouds will clear with northwest winds gusting at 15 to 25 mph, decreasing to 10 to 15 mph after midnight. Monday’s low will be in the upper 20s with a high in the lower 50s.
