Georgia Weather History for January 28th

In 1948, an ice storm that affected states from Arkansas to South Carolina, including Georgia, caused $20 million in damage and resulted in 30 deaths.

In 2014, a major winter storm brought snow and ice to north and central Georgia. Snow amounts of 2 to 4 inches were widespread across north and parts of central Georgia with isolated amounts of near 6 inches in the mountains. In central Georgia 1 to 3 inches of snow was common along with 0.25 to 0.50 inches of ice. While only 1 to 3 inches of snow fell in the Atlanta metro area, tremendous traffic jams were caused by the icy roads which resulted in extremely long travel times. Some people were reported to have taken 6 hours to drive 30 miles. Others abandoned their vehicles and walked to their homes or to hotels. This littered the interstates and roads with abandoned cars. Others remained in their cars, trucks and buses for as much as 22 hours. For more information, visit the event summary.
