Though snow was falling early Friday in extreme north Georgia, Barnesville-Lamar County will see only a light dusting of flakes and you will have to get up early Saturday to see those if current forecasting models hold true.
At present, snow is expected here during the 3 a.m. - 6 a.m. time period Saturday. Temperatures will rise above 32 degrees by 9:30 a.m. so any snow on the ground won't be there long.
