Frigid temps cause pipes to burst across metro; another cold day expected Tuesday

This is the coldest weather we've seen in a very long time. Most people woke up Monday to temperatures in the teens and 20s in north Georgia. 

Severe Weather Team 2 Meteorologist Brian Monahan said it was the coldest morning since January 2018. 

The wind was gusting up to 15 mph, which made temperatures feel even colder.

Temperatures climbed into the 30s and 40s, but get ready for another cold day Tuesday.

Severe Weather Team 2's Chief Meteorologist Glenn Burns said temperatures will drop below freezing overnight.

The cold is causing pipes to burst. In the last 24 hours, we've seen multiple water main breaks, including one on Clairmont Road in DeKalb, another at Spring and 16th streets in midtown Atlanta and one on North Druid Hills Road that sent cars spinning.

The next chance for rain comes later this week.

The long-term forecast for the next two weeks shows that it will be colder than average. 

A busted fire hydrant caused an icy mess on North Druid Hills and Briarcliff Road early Monday morning. Crews blocked the area as they worked to stop the leak.
