Coldest air of season moving in overnight

A strong storm system has moved out of Georgia, but the coldest air of the season has moved in to replace it.

Temperatures are in the 30s to start off Sunday, but it feels as low as the 20s outside, according to Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Eboni Deon.  

Strong wind gusts of up to 40 mph are possible with a wind advisory in effect until 7 p.m. Sunday. 

Deon says gusty winds will make for tricky travel -- especially in high profile vehicles -- and chilly conditions. 

The coldest morning of the season arrives for Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, with lows in the teens and 20s with highs in the low 40s. 

Several warming shelters will be open throughout metro Atlanta.

The City of Atlanta opened its warming center at Old Adamsville Recreation Center, 3404 Delmar Lane NW at 8 a.m. this morning. It will close at Noon on Monday before it reopnes at 7 p.m. 

DeKalb will open these shelters tonight at 5 p.m. and will keep them open until Tuesday at noon.
