ATLANTA - Very cold temperatures are greeting early-risers getting up to put their turkeys in the oven this morning.
At 4 a.m., it was 25 degrees in Atlanta, with a feels-like temperature of 13. The lowest temperature of the morning was 22 degrees.
According to Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist David Chandley, metro Atlanta has not seen temperatures this low on Thanksgiving since 1911, when temperatures dipped to 21 degrees. The high is set at 47 degrees, 12 degrees below average.
The sunshine will warm things up for Black Friday and the weekend, when high temperatures will reach the lower 50s. The weekend forecast is much drier than earlier in the week, when a massive winter storm brought several inches of rain and a few snow flurries to the area.
