The National Weather Service moved up the start of its ice storm warning for our area over night. It is now to start at noon and run through 5 p.m. Wednesday.
An accompanying winter storm warning begins at 11 this morning and runs until 9 a.m. Wednesday.
With a forecasted 100 chance of precipitation through the day, here's the heart of the service's warning for Coastal Georgia:
"Temperatures will fall to near freezing this afternoon then into the mid to upper 20s tonight. Significant ice accumulation will create dangerous driving conditions for motorists, including first responders. Damage to trees and power lines is likely. Widespread power outages are also possible. Ice accumulations will be around one half of an inch. Rain is expected to transition to freezing rain and sleet by this afternoon as much colder air pushes southward across the region. Precipitation should end as a period of snow and sleet late tonight into early Wednesday."
