What does that mean? Light snow/flurries are possible and road conditions may degrade quickly.

Be very careful on the roads, as they can get slippery, and be aware of the potential for ice.

Right now, models are agreeing on winter weather possibility, but some are more aggressive than others.

The WMAZ Weather Team will continue to monitor this to see how this event plays out. 

A special weather statement is in place for Hancock, Warren, Jones, Baldwin, Washington, Glascock, Jefferson, Crawford, Bibb, Twiggs, Wilkinson, Macon, Peach, Houston, Bleckley, Sumter, Dooly, Crisp, and Pulaski counties.  

This is simply a precaution, but is worth mentioning.

Winter weather impacts for those in the special weather statement are possible, but minimal. Slick road conditions and light flurries can't be completely ruled out. 

It would be a good idea to prepare your homes for the cold: leave pipes dripping warm water in your homes, and bring in plants and pets.
