Rain, freezing temperatures on the way


ATLANTA,None - A blast of cold air will bring rain and then the coldest weather of the season to metro Atlanta.

The cold front will arrive in north Georgia Wednesday evening and bring spotty showers, according to Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist David Chandley.

"The rain will be light and scattered. Some will see no rain at all. We'll have decreasing clouds toward morning and lows will be in the mid 40s," Chandley said.

Once the rain moves out the sun returns but it brings wind and much cooler temperatures with highs on Thursday projected to be in the 50s. Then, Chandley said, it will get even colder.

"It will be much colder Thursday night and Friday morning. Low temperatures closer to the city will be in the low 30s but some suburbs will have lows in the upper 20s," Chandley said.

There will be a slight warm up by the weekend. Chandley forecasted a Friday high of 56 degrees and a high of 63 degrees on Saturday.
