The City of Alpharetta continues to battle icing conditions on priority roadways, bridges and overpasses. Ice is present on most roadways, and current temperatures will ensure that treated roadways will quickly refreeze.

It is recommended that the public refrain from vehicle travel for the remainder of this weather event due to road conditions.


While the city is currently seeing a break in precipitation, current forecasts are for snow, freezing rain and sleet to continue off and on throughout the afternoon. Precipitation will transition to mostly snow after 6:00 PM. Chance of precipitation is 100%. High temperature near 29 degrees. Sustained winds of 10 miles per hour out of the northeast with gusts as high as 15 miles per hour. Total daytime snow and sleet accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible with an additional 0.1 to 0.3 of an inch of ice.


Winter precipitation is expected to move out of the Alpharetta area around 5:00 AM Thursday. Temperatures will remain below freezing and maintain any ice and snow accumulations through mid-morning. High temperatures in the low 40s. Overnight lows will fall below freezing, so any moisture remaining on area roadways will refreeze creating the potential for ice hazards Friday morning.
