After a day in which temperatures plummeted and rain fell, metro Atlanta endured a Saturday of weather in the 30s and penetrating wind.

Shortly before 5 p.m., the temp was 36 degrees, with a high of 39 forecast. The average for this date is 52 degrees.


However, the temperature is only part of the story. Wind gusts of up to 30 mph will make the weather feel about 10 to 15 degrees colder than the actual temp.

“It is going to be a very cold next five to seven days across North Georgia,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brian Monahan said Saturday morning.

“We are right back in the freezer.”


There’s no threat of any wintry mix Saturday, Monahan said. “We are going to stay dry.”

It’ll be frigid into Saturday evening, with a low of 21 expected. Sunday’s high also is expected to be 39.
