SUNDAY’S WEATHER-TRAFFIC: Mother’s Day will start off sunny, but cool

While Sunday is off to a sunny start,  you may want to bring along a light jacket for Mom if you have any early morning activities planned.

Mother’s Day is expected to start off cool, and a frost advisory is in place for some parts of the state until 10 a.m., Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said. 


“There’s plenty of sunshine early on, but it’s going to be a cold start,” she said. “If you’re taking your mom out to breakfast or brunch she’ll probably want to layer up just a bit.” 

Sunday’s low temperature is expected to be a chilly 43 degrees in Atlanta, which would make it the coldest May morning since 2004. 

The weather should warm up by the afternoon, however, when temperatures are expected to reach the low 70s. While that’s cooler than average for this time of year, the weather should be pleasant and not too breezy, Deon said.


Monday and Tuesday are expected to remain cool and dry, with temperatures in the high 60s or low 70s, she said. Things should get back to normal by midweek, with temperatures approaching 80 degrees on Wednesday. 

As for traffic, construction crews plan to take advantage of the dry weather by completing several road projects across metro Atlanta.

In Fulton County, several lanes of I-85 North will be closed overnight from the Buford Highway Connector to Ga. 400, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation. The road work should wrap up by 5 a.m. Monday.
