There could be more snow in Georgia less than a week after a winter snowstorm dumped several inches on northern parts of the state heavily. 

Wednesday forecasts to be mostly dry before a round of rain moves in overnight into Thursday morning. A cold front will come through Thursday heading toward to Carolinas.

The kind of wintry precipitation Georgia could get depends on how much moisture returns on top of the cold air on Friday.
