Big flakes here after going to sleet for about 10 mins. Everything almost white now. Good solid dusting. This is probably gonna be a over on the NW side of ATL. If it stays cold enough, I could easily see areas getting 2-4 inches.

Took those pics about 25 min ago. Large flakes, moderate to heavy. Slush is starting to build up on HWY 91. I can't see any bridges, but they are probably snow covered, with a temp at 27°F. I'm gonna try and get a good pic of the snow falling now. I'm like a kid lol....

Back to small flakes and sleet now. I am a bit worried this will continue all day. Seems the big flakes can't last longer than 5 mins. I would say we have a quarter of a inch on the ground. I am just waiting for it to go to snow and stay all snow with big flakes.

Periods of big flakes now back to smaller snow flakes. Well over half a inch now. I think we should easily see 2 inches here NW of Atlanta and I would not be surprised to see 3 inches.

Here where I am, Hanceville, AL it's been snowing about an inch per hour and darker returns moving in. This is probably 35 miles north of Birmingham, where a trace of snow was foretasted for here ( No, I'm not hating on any weather service at all. It is snow in the South, surprises will ALWAYS happen ). I think we may get close to 3-5 inches here. I'll go back out in an hour and take another measurement.

Edit: Was looking at the composite radar from AlabamaWX, I think it's a few hours behind. So my guesstimate needs adjusting lol.... more like close to 3 inches here, based on radar trends =)
