Clouds will move out as the afternoon progresses, but don't expect much of a warmup.

Atlanta weather | Warm-up coming after chilly Thursday

By Friday afternoon, temperatures will be at least 10 degrees warmer than they were Wednesday afternoon. And the weekend will be even warmer.

But first, a chilly Thursday is on the way, according to chief meteorologist Glenn Burns with Channel 2 Action News. Here’s a day-by-day look at what you need to know:

  • Thursday: You’ll need to bundle up the kids before sending them out to the school bus stop in the morning, when temperatures will dip into the lower 20s, Burns said. Low temperatures will be colder than normal, but not near the record of 13 degrees, set back in 1934. Sunny skies will warm up Thursday afternoon to the upper 40s and low 50s.

  • Friday: Another sunny day is on the way, Burns said. Temperatures will climb to the mid 60s before clouds move in late in the day. There is about a 10 percent chance of rain late Friday night.

  • Saturday and Sunday: The weekend forecast is a dry one and will be warmer, Burns said. Sunday afternoon’s high will reach 70 degrees. But don’t put away the jackets just yet. Another cold front moves in for next week, Burns said.
