Atlanta weather | Chilly morning with warm-up to come

Some metro Atlantans awoke to frost, but forecasters predict a significant warming trend through the weekend.

Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said temperatures around the region dipped into the 30s early Thursday morning.

But expect a change, she said.

“We’ll have a big warm-up,” Minton said. “Seventies are back.”

The mercury will climb to the low-60s by Thursday afternoon, she said, but an unseasonably high 77 degrees is expected by Saturday afternoon.
