After a wintery mix of snow and freezing rain covered DeKalb County Friday night, a lull in the weather Saturday morning has led to the City of DeKalb calling off the snow emergency imposed to help clear roads.
The snow emergency was called off shortly after 10 a.m. Saturday, which means snow routes, requiring all cars parked curbside in specific areas to be moved to make way for snow plows coming through, are no longer in effect.
A winter weather advisory is still in effect until 6 p.m. Saturday, according to the National Weather Service, with a cold front expedcted in late Saturday, bringing more snow and falling temperatures.
Residents could see up to 5 inches of snow by Saturday evening. Drivers should be on alert because the roads will be affected.
Residents get a break from winter weather Saturday morning before temperatures fall. Winds could increase to 45 mph while light snow resumes.
