It hasn’t felt this cold since March, Channel 2 Action News meteorologists say.

Currently, it’s 42 degrees but it feels like 33.

In fact, Sunday’s cold broke the record low high of 44 degrees, set in 1910, Channel 2 meteorologist Brian Monahan said.


Last time we felt temperatures this cold was around St. Patrick’s day in March, when it was 37 degrees, Monahan said. 

Parts of North Georgia woke up to see snow flakes falling and metro Atlanta wind chill made it feel like temperatures in the 20s.


It’s cloudy, windy and cold, Monahan said, and it’s going to stay that way Sunday.

“More sun is coming, but the cold isn’t going anywhere,” he said. “It is going to stay windy, too.”

Wind gusts up to 40 mph were felt Sunday afternoon, Channel 2 reported. 

The northern highs are in the 40s Sunday, but temps in the 30s with those wind chills, Monahan said.

Atlanta and areas south of the city can expect highs in the low 50s Sunday.

Monday’s wake-up weather is expected to be even colder with a chance for widespread frost.

By Tuesday, temps are expected back in the mild range for Trick-or-Treating and highs rise to the 70s by the end of the work week.
