That will likely turn to sleet and freezing rain by Monday, according to the National Weather Service.
Floyd County police officer Greg Beck advises motorists to stay off the roads. He said officers have a plan to call in more resources if necessary.
Jamie McCord, Rome Public Works director, said crews will be ready to deal with problems on the roads. Supervisors are set to come in to work at 6 p.m. today, and crews will report at 8 p.m.
Scotty Hancock, Floyd EMA director, said this afternoon that the county will likely be "white" by midnight.
"What we're concerned about is the ice after the snow," Hancock said.
Ice accumulation of 0.1 to 0.25 inches are possible Monday, along with new sleet of 1 to 3 inches, according to weather officials.
A winter storm warning is in effect from 7 p.m. today until 7 p.m. Monday.

How to Stay Safe
Floyd County EMA offers this advice to stay safe during a winter storm:
1. Keep your radio or television tuned to a local station to keep informed of current weather conditions and forecasts.
2. Be prepared at home by keeping adequate supplies: heating fuel, non-perishable food, clean water, flashlights with extra batteries, first aid supplies, extra blankets, and a battery powered radio. A fire extinguisher is also recommended for year-round use, if needed, in your home.
3. Keep some kind of emergency heating equipment and fuel on hand so you can keep at least one room of your house livable in case your power is off. Keep the room ventilated to avoid buildup of toxic fumes.
4. Stay indoors as much as possible. If you must go outdoors, dress warm in loose-fitting, layered, lightweight clothing. Your outer garment should be water repellent. Avoid overexertion from walking to get supplies.
5. Driving conditions might be hazardous, so use precaution while driving.
