The worst of the storm is past us

Cobb County fared well in winter storm Izzy. While the beginning of the storm brought downed tree and power outages, the roads were cleared and power restored quickly within the county.

Cobb is still under the following wind advisory, but additional snow is not expected, and the snowfall in Cobb was not heavy to begin with.

  mph expected. Possible higher winds in the mountains.

* WHERE...Portions of north central, northeast, northwest and
  west central Georgia.

* WHEN...Until 7 PM EST today.

* IMPACTS...Gusty winds will blow around unsecured objects.
  Large tree limbs and some trees could be blown down and power
  outages may result.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS...Ice or snow accumulations on tree limbs
  and branches may make trees more vulnerable to being downed in
  gusty winds.


Use extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high
profile vehicle. Secure outdoor objects.

In addition the National Weather Service issued an outlook that a cold front is coming on Thursday, and there is a chance of wintry precipitation on Thursday and Friday.
