The daytime high Friday will be 56 degrees, Burns said, “right on target for this time of year,” with warmer temperatures to the south and east. Temperatures in the mountains will be in the low 50s.
Saturday is going to be breezy at times with lots of sunshine and dry air, and a high in the mid-50s, Burns said.
Expect wind of 5 to 10 mph in metro Atlanta in the morning Saturday and 15 to 20 mph in the mountains. Throughout the day, however, the east to northeasterly wind will pick up to 10 to 15 mph with gusts as high as 20 to 25 mph at times, especially in west and northwestern Georgia, Burns said.
The wind will taper off later Saturday and should be gone by Saturday night, Burns said.
The meteorologist said that over the next several days, conditions should remain dry with highs in the mid 50s to around 60 on Monday, and lows in the mid to upper 30s.
