ATLANTA,None —

Severe Weather Team 2 meteorologist Karen Minton said metro Atlantans will not see the big warm-up on Wednesday that they experienced on Tuesday.

Minton said the warmest temperatures of the day will be Wednesday morning.

Rain continued to move through metro Atlanta and north Georgia Wednesday morning.  Some rain will be tapering off, but other areas will be experiencing heavy downpours, Minton said.

"Winds will be a factor today too.  That wind advisory goes into effect at noon today (in the north Georgia mountains) as this cold front moves off to the east," said Minton.

Minton said by 8 a.m. the rain will move out of Atlanta, leaving partly cloudy skies behind.

A cold front moving into metro Atlanta Wednesday morning means the highs are expected to be in the upper 50s.

Meteorologist David Chandley said the front is part of a major cold snap that is heading toward north Georgia and it could bring the first touch of frost this fall.

 “Thursday morning should be clear and cold with some 30s in north Georgia and temperatures in the 40s closer to Atlanta,” Chandley said.

 There is a chance of frost both Thursday and Friday mornings in outer metro counties.
