ATLANTA - Very dry, cool air will remain across north Georgia into Thursday morning.
Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns says the metro woke up to temperatures in the low 40s Thursday morning, and areas throughout and around the north Georgia mountains saw lows in the high 30s.
A frost advisory was issued for Fannin, Union, Towns, Lumpkin and White counties until 9 a.m.
The biggest impacts include damaging frost to unprotected plants.
“We’ll see lots of sunshine but a big warmup by noontime,” Burns said.
Temps will rise to the mid-to-upper 60s by the afternoon commute. Temps will fall back to the upper 50s by the late evening Thursday.
“Pretty typical temperatures for this time of year,” Burns said. “We're going to see some big changes by the weekend.”

Arctic air will be pushing down from the north and may cause some showers ahead of the front on Saturday morning.
“Saturday’s going to be a rainy day, and temperatures throughout the day are going to be falling as that cold arctic air spills into northern Georgia,” Burns said.
After the rain moves out, it will remain cold, with a high around 54 degrees. Temps will warm again come Monday.
