Forecasters predicted west winds between 15 and 20 miles per hour with gusts up to 30.
Further to the east, low humidity and wind prompted forecasters to issue a red flag warning for Franklin, Hart and Elbert counties. The warning means conditions are favorable for wildfires.

While no watches or warnings were issued, the weather service predicted a change of snow flurries Saturday in Fannin, Gilmer, Union, Towns, Pickens, Dawson, Lumpkin and White counties.
