On Sunday, March 1st, precipitation wrapping around a low pressure system which tracked across Georgia from south of Columbus to near Athens, brought a swath of snowfall across portions of north and central Georgia. Light rain began ahead of the upper low during the early morning hours, and changed over to a rain snow mix over west Georgia around 8am and then to all snow by late morning. The combination and timing of the cold air and moisture created the largest area-wide snow event since 2002. Snow fell across the area through the day and into the evening hours, exiting east Georgia late Sunday evening. The map below shows the snowfall amounts across north and central Georgia.
