Rebecca Hollis drags her suitcases through New York's Times Square on January 4

Frigid temperatures in north Georgia aren't showing any signs of letting up as forecasters are predicting freezing rain in Dawson County beginning Sunday night into Monday.

Temperatures are expected to be in the single digits to lower teens on Saturday and Sunday, but it'll feel like 5 degrees below zero to 25 below with the wind chill, according to the National Weather Service.

The National Weather Service has also issued a winter weather advisory for the region until 6 p.m. Saturday amid the cold temperatures and wind causing blowing and drifting snow on the roadways.

Come Sunday, the skies will be mostly sunny with a high around 50 degrees. The precipitation is expected to taper and then change over to rain by 8 a.m. Monday.

"I, for one, am really looking forward to it", he said.

Freezing rain is possible Friday morning and is likely Friday night at Meacham, Ore., according to the weather service.

Accumulation is not expected to be heavy, with NWS anticipating "up to 0.05 inches" on trees and power lines, but little - if any - on most ground surfaces.

Derry said highs Monday through next Thursday should be in the 20s, with clouds on Monday and next Thursday and sun Tuesday and Wednesday. Scattered showers are possible Thursday with highs in the upper 50s.
