WHITE COUNTY, Ga. — Currently, we have no issues with roadways, even in the higher elevations. Teams have reported light accumulations on the mountain tops and ridges along the county line and into Blairsville, Hiawassee, and Clayton.
We are still under a winter weather warning as we could see a burst of heavy snowfall during the morning hours, with temporary travel issues, however, surface temperatures in the lower elevations of Cleveland, and just south of Helen will remain above freezing or just at freezing during the morning. By afternoon temperatures will reach the 35-38 degrees until sundown, and moisture should be well out of our area.
All offices opened at regular time today. If employees live in areas of accumulation or must travel the mountain from Blairsville, Hiawasee or Clayton area and have concerns, they are to contact the department manager for direction and notification.
We will keep you posted as conditions develop.
Any questions, please contact our office.
