Cold temps to stick around, but the sun comes back tomorrow

ATLANTA — The clouds will part and the sun will come back out, but it will do little to help the cold temperatures the Atlanta metro has seen the last few days.

“We have at least a couple more days of wintry-like temperatures before the spring-like temperatures return later this week and into the weekend,” said Severe Weather Team 2 chief meteorologist Glenn Burns.

Tuesday morning some areas of north Georgia woke up to winter weather. Areas in and around Blue Ridge, Elijay and Dahlonega saw an inch or less of snow.

Channel 2 Action News viewers started tweeting Tuesday evening they were seeing some flurries in the metro as well.

The wind speeds we’re seeing through the metro area will subside as well Tuesday night, Burns said.

“I think the winds overnight tonight will be anywhere from 5-15 mph, and we will see winds gusting from time to time to 20 mph,” Burns said.

Most of the metro will see lows in the mid-20s Wednesday morning, with temps warming up to the mid-40s for the high. Wind chills will fall into the upper teens in the morning, as well.

Despite the cold temperatures, the sun will be out.

There will be “plenty of sunshine and it’s going to feel a whole lot better,” Burns said.

Temperatures will fall back to just above the freezing mark Wednesday night.

Thursday is when the metro will start to feel a bit of a warmup, Burns said, with temperatures in the 50s and 60s by the weekend.
