The signs of winter are all around us, from the falling leaves to Christmas decorations, and this week Georgians experienced the first freeze of the season.
Forth-graders at Flint Hill Elementary had weather on their minds Thursday as meteorologist Brad Nitz from WSB-TV visited. Nitz explained how clouds and water vapor can create hail in severe weather.
The children listened and watched as Nitz explained all sorts of cool weather information.
One of the most common questions asked of Nitz is, “Are we going to get any snow this winter?” Nitz explains it’s not as easy to predict long-term forecasts as it is a five to seven day forecast.
Georgia usually gets about 1 inch of snow each winter. As for our chances to see the white stuff this season, it’s about average, Nitz said.
