Atlanta opening warming shelter as temperatures drop 

The city of Atlanta will open its warming center Saturday evening as temperatures continue to plummet.

Transportation will be provided from the Gateway Center located at 275 Pryor St. in southwest Atlanta. 

Saturday morning reached 57 degrees in the city, but temperatures are dropping drastically thanks to a cold front that has moved into North Georgia.

It’s expected to be about 37 degrees by 11 p.m., but gusty winds will make it feel more like the 20s, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls said. 

By Sunday morning, residents across metro Atlanta will wake up to near-freezing temperatures, she said.
