ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Snow is falling in South Georgia and it will get heavier as the day goes on.
The snow started falling in Terrell County just before eight Friday morning and is expected to continue falling throughout the day.
Parts of South Georgia are under a winter storm warning today and we could get snow accumulations of one to three inches here in Albany.
Between three and five inches of snow could fall in Lee and Sumter Counties.
Flakes are falling -- or threatening to fall -- today from Texas to the Florida Panhandle and then up along the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina. The snow is bringing a rare white landscape to spots that haven't seen snow in a decade or longer.
The storm is crawling east out of Texas, where it left the Dallas area with more than a foot of snow.
Far less snow is falling in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama. But it still is having a crippling effect. Snow, ice and sleet closed parts of Interstate 49 in central Louisiana.
Just the anticipation of an inch of snow was enough to close schools in the Florida Panhandle, while classes also were canceled in parts of Alabama and Georgia.
Airlines canceled hundreds of flights Friday as snow pounded parts of the South and threatened to dump several inches of white on Atlanta, home to the world's busiest airport.
Delta Air Lines and its feeder partners canceled 1,100 flights in anticipation of 2 to 4 inches of snow in the metro Atlanta area.

American Airlines and its American Eagle affiliate canceled about 400 flights Friday, including 228 at its hub at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. The snowfall there made this the snowiest winter in the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 32 seasons.
Back in Atlanta, AirTran Airways canceled 62 flights in anticipation of the impending snow.
Airline passengers were being encouraged to check the status of their flights before leaving for airports.
