Snowflakes, warnings from Ala. to West Virginia

ATLANTA (AP) - Snow is falling in the north Georgia mountains and as far south as the Atlanta area, while several Southeastern states are seeing flakes or under winter storm warnings.

North Alabama reported snow mixed with icy rain early Tuesday and a winter weather advisory is in effect for most of the day. Schools in three counties delayed opening due to slick roads. Several north Georgia counties closed schools for the day.

Light snow or flurries started the day in parts of Tennessee. The National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings or advisories in western North and South Carolina. Light snow was possible in parts of Kentucky and West Virginia.

Many areas expecting snow could see it to turn to rain as temperatures hover above freezing.
