ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters say northeast Georgia saw more snowfall overnight, accumulating up to eight inches of snow in the area.

Meteorologist Carly Kovacik says Rabun County received much of the snow in the far north area of the state Saturday. Kovacik says the winter storm warning will expire at 7 p.m.

After the warning expires, Kovacik expects some lingering slick spots and winds to subside.

Metro Atlanta experienced some snowfall Saturday morning, but Kovacik says nothing more than an inch.

Kovacik says the chance of snow will greatly diminish in the metro area Saturday afternoon, but minor flooding could occur.

Georgia Power spokesman John Kraft says at least 4,200 customers are without power throughout Georgia, with many of those affected in northeast Georgia and metro Atlanta. The metro area had 2,600 outages while the northeast part of the state had 1,500 customers without power.

Since the storm began early Friday, Kraft says Georgia power crews have restored power to more than 66,000 customers statewide. Many outages were caused by high winds that knocked trees down and into electrical lines.
