Original post, 6:16 a.m.: 
Duluth Public Works officials are prepared for the snow that is expected to arrive at mid-morning Tuesday (Jan. 28).

Public Works Director Audrey Turner said Monday that workers will be on 12-hour shifts for the severe weather that is forecast. "Our trucks are loaded," Turner said at a City Council work session.

A time breakdown on weather.com calls for "flurries" to begin about 11 a.m. in the Duluth area. That changes to "snow shower" about 3 p.m., and those conditions are expected to last through the evening.

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Gwinnett County, beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday. That warning also calls for snow, with accumulation of up to 2 inches.

Also, the warning carries the following advisory:


As of 6 a.m. Tuesday (Jan. 28), Gwinnett County Public Schools were holding classes as usual.

-- Patch will have updates on the weather.

According to my GCPS employee wife, the lost time will be made up by adding 30 minutes to each day going forward. No additional days will be added to the calendar as a result.
