You’ve probably heard quite a bit about it by now – but a record of 2.6″ of snowfall in Atlanta was able to shut down the city. Thousands of abandoned cars littering the road, and close to 1000 accidents.
Quite a scene.
It all started close to midday. This was the first observation from Atlanta with snow:
That kicked things off. 24 hours later we’re still assessing the final impact.
TUESDAY: EARLY AFTERNOON
This was one of the first pictures sent in to us here at WeatherNation. From early afternoon Tuesday:
TUESDAY: EARLY EVENING
This was a few hours later. Near 5PM – you can see traffic into the city is much lighter.
It wasn’t just that stretch of road. Look at the traffic map from around 7pm EST.
WEDNESDAY: 2AM WEDNESDAY MORNING
Many of those cars were still there at 2AM from the previous day. Can you imagine? I’d love to hear from someone who was stuck in their car… so if you’re reading this and were one of those people – please tweet me at @ashafferWNTV.
A very accurate headline. Frozen. With temperatures not set to rise much, many areas will still be frozen until Thursday… when some marginal warmth (highs in the lower 40s) arrives.
A frightening scene, to say the least.
Stay tuned to WeatherNation for more as we see how this situation develops.
