MIDWAY, Fl. (WTXL) -- Wednesday morning's cold front will bring the chance of wintry precipitation to mainly Southwest Georgia counties. After the front passes, major cold is expected for a few days before temperatures begin to warm back up.

Wednesday: Some morning lows are actually going to be daytime highs for spots today as temperatures start off in the upper 30s to lower 40s and they'll continue to cool off due to a rush of Arctic air from the northwest. The potential for some wintry precipitation is here for today, mainly for counties north of the state-line. Interior counties of the Western Big Bend may see a mix of rain/snow with some brief flurries that are not expected to accumulate.

For Southwest Georgia, however, accumulation of less than 1" is possible. Because of the potential impacts due to accumulating snow and any potential icing, there is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 1:00pm ET for several counties in Southwest Georgia.

Daytime highs in the afternoon may reach the upper 30s to lower 40s. Winds will pick up behind the front, making the air feel even colder, with potential wind chills in the 20s for the late morning hours.
