The National Weather Service posted its winter storm warning for 4 p.m. Friday through 1 p.m. Saturday. It says the worst winter weather is expected in portions of the state north of Rome, Cumming and Danielsville. In addition to accumulations of 1 to 3 inches of snow and sleet, residents could see ¼ inch of freezing rain.

Metro Atlanta is under a winter weather advisory, with up to an inch of snow and sleet forecast between Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
