ATLANTA — A line of strong storms and heavy rain made its way across metro Atlanta this afternoon, downing trees and power lines, leaving thousands in the dark as temperatures began to fall.
Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brad Nitz said after the front moved through early Thursday evening, cold air followed dropping temperatures about 35 degrees across north Georgia.
A Channel 2 Action News viewer sent in video from Fannin County showing light snow flurries there.
A freeze warning remains in effect until 10 a.m. Friday.
The City of Atlanta opened an emergency warming center Thursday night because of the frigid weather. The Old Adamsville Recreation Center will remain open until 10 a.m. Friday.
Temperatures are expected to drop into the 30s in parts of the metro overnight, according to Severe Weather Team 2.
