ATLANTA (AP) - Forecasters say the heavy snowfall has stopped in northeast Georgia.

National Weather Service meteorologist Mike Leary says snow began to melt early Sunday after eight inches of snow accumulated mostly in Rabun County the previous day. Leary says the snow is not completely gone with temperatures close to freezing with a slight chance of ice.

Leary says he is not expecting snow for about a week until next Wednesday.

Georgia Power spokeswoman Ashley Stukes says 945 customers are without power Sunday throughout statewide. Stukes says the bulk of their costumer outages are in northeast area of state with 602 due to the freezing rain and constant snowfall.

Since the storm began early Friday, Stukes says Georgia Power crews have restored power to more than 125,000 customers statewide in total.
