Snow later this week?
Forecasts call for more very cold weather

Bryan County may get some rare weather later in the week.

Bryan County Emergency Services Director Jim Anderson said Monday that there is a 30 percent chance of "mixed precipation" from Wednesday through Friday, which could mean sleet or snow.

The last time it snowed in Bryan County was December, 1989.

The next few days will be cold, regardless. Forecasts call for lows in the mid-to-low 20s, then an overnight low of 18 Friday morning. That's unusual for coastal Georgia.

"It’s normally not this cold this time of year," Anderson. "It usually doesn’t get this cold until February."

Here are some cold weather tips from

- Dress in layered clothing and wear some kind of head cover.

- Keep pets inside; when necessary to walk them, do so on the grass, not the cold sidewalk.

- Protect livestock and other animals with adequate shelter, extra feed and supplemental heat.

- Bring potted plants inside.

- Cover outdoor plants with burlap or cloth. Cold will penetrate plastic.

- Check space heaters for sufficient ventilation and wire condition.

- Never place space heaters close to flammable objects, such as drapes or bedding.

- Make sure fireplace flues are working properly.

- Check extension cords for breaks or fraying.

- Do not use charcoal or gas grills indoors. They produce deadly carbon monoxide fumes.

- Check on the elderly and infirm.
