Looks like it may happen!
From the NWS:

Statement as of 3:41 PM EST on February 28, 2009




... Winter Weather Advisory in effect from 10 am Sunday to
midnight EST Sunday night...

The National Weather Service in Peachtree City has issued a
Winter Weather Advisory... which is in effect from 10 am Sunday to
midnight EST Sunday night. The advisory area covers much of north
and central Georgia north of a line from Cusseta to Perry to
Milledgeville to west of Augusta.

Light rain will move into far northwest Georgia late tonight as
the storm system moves toward the state. As the upper level low
pressure area tracks across southern Georgia... cold air aloft will
push across the state causing the rain to mix with and eventually
change to snow.

The strong lift associated with the storm system will create a
swath of significant precipitation to the north of the low
pressure area. As the cold air moves into this precipitation
Sunday afternoon and evening... snow accumulations of 1 to 2 inches
can be expected with isolated higher amounts possible.

The limiting factor for heavier snow accumulation will be a layer
of above freezing temperatures near the surface which will cause
some of the snow to melt... especially during the morning. Ground
surfaces will also be warm due to the recent mild temperatures and
should make it difficult for snow to accumulate on roadways.
However... if a heavy band of snow develops it could cause
temperatures to fall and significant accumulations of snow to
occur on roads.

Persons in the advisory area are urged to monitor the latest
conditions and forecasts on television... radio... the internet or
NOAA Weather Radio. If the storm system or cold air intensifies
further... a Winter Storm Warning may be issued for parts of the
area.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow... sleet... or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities... and use caution while
driving.
