Arctic blast to plunge temperatures in the teens

ATLANTA — If you think it's cold now, just wait until next week.

On Friday, temperatures will start off in the 20s but will rebound around 50, said Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz.

"The high temperature tomorrow gets back closer to where we should be this time of year," Nitz said.

It will be during the weekend when the frigid air moves into Georgia.

We'll have a timeline showing when the potentially dangerous air moves in, on Channel 2 Action News This Morning. 

"Toward the weekend, we'll see much colder air spill in and as we head through the week, next week, a big drop in temperatures," Nitz said.

What viewers only get on Channel 2 Action News:

Nitz said temperatures will fall into the teens and some areas could see single digit temperatures.
