Area residents could get a taste of winter weather this holiday week.

High temperatures are expected to linger in the mid-40s or below for most of the week, with a chance for rain Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service in Peachtree City. There's also a slight chance of snow from 4-7 p.m. Wednesday.

The weather agency has issued a "hazardous weather outlook" that says some parts of Northeast Georgia could get overnight light freezing rain and sleet Tuesday and Wednesday.

A mix of sleet and freezing rain is possible tonight, changing over to rain by mid- to late morning on Tuesday.

But later Tuesday, the precipitation could change to a rain and snow mix by late evening, changing to all snow at elevations above 1,500 feet by early Wednesday morning.

Low pressure developing in the northern Gulf of Mexico could be the culprit in the coming weather system.

It is expected to produce widespread precipitation in North and Middle Georgia tonight through Wednesday.

Some areas in North or Middle Georgia could get 1-3 inches, as "locally higher amounts will have the potential to create minor flooding," according to the weather service.

Temperatures, overnight and daytime, might stay between 35 and 40 degrees today and Tuesday, and both days will be marked by wind gusts - up to 20 mph Tuesday night.

The rain is expected to clear out Thursday morning, but chilly temperatures could remain.

Thanksgiving's forecast, as of Sunday evening, called for sunny skies and a high temperature near 45.

Sunny skies are expected to remain through the weekend, and the mercury also could rise, with a high of 51 predicted for Sunday.
