While Sunday morning got off to a dry start, the end of the weekend also has turned out to be chilly and windy so far.
In some parts of metro Atlanta, temperatures were 20 degrees colder this morning than Saturday morning.
“We’ll see plenty of sun for the afternoon,” said Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon.
The drier weather should linger for the next few days, Deon said.
For your Sunday, it might not be a bad idea to bring along a jacket to any outdoor activities, however, as a cold front settles into North Georgia, with highs expected to linger in the 50s.
“We are going to see a much cooler start to Sunday morning,” Deon said. “Despite the sunshine, we’re only expected to reach 56 degrees.”
That cooldown should be be brief however, as metro Atlanta warms back into the 60s this week, setting up a warmer-than-average Thanksgiving Day.
As for traffic, Georgia Department of Transportation crews are expected to be out in full force, so make sure to give yourself plenty of time to get where you’re going on Atlanta’s interstates.
Marietta police also said there will be lane closures near WellStar Kennestone Hospital through 6 a.m. Monday, so Cobb County residents are advised to avoid the area if possible.
Drivers may also run into delays in downtown Atlanta as the Atlanta Falcons host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Kickoff is at 1 p.m.
For those looking ahead to the holiday on Thursday, it should be a dry day after a rainy Wednesday.
