WEATHER-TRAFFIC: Warmer than normal temps Sunday

The second half of the weekend is sunny and warm, but the nice weather won’t stick around much longer. 

Sunday got off to a soggy start after rain moved into North Georgia on Saturday evening stuck around until about 8 a.m.,

However, that changed heading into the afternoon, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon said.

It is windy, but temperatures are floating around 66 degrees in Atlanta right now. 

Monday is only expected to warm up to 46, Deon said. 

“Behind the front, colder air will move in with lows dipping into the 30s Monday morning,” she said. “Highs will not get out of the 40s. There is chance that wraparound moisture could reach the northeast Georgia mountains early on Monday, producing a light wintry mix.” 


While the Georgia Department of Transportation suspended major road projects for the Thanksgiving weekend, Sunday is expected a major travel day as families head back home.

Drivers are advised to give themselves additional time if they’re heading out onto Atlanta’s interstates. 

A few other traffic hangups are causing strife for drivers. 

Drivers in Paulding County should avoid High Shoals Road while the sheriff’s office investigates a “traffic issue.” 

“A brush fire near Highway 61 has closed High Shoals Road and will require a detour of traffic for the next few hours,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. 

All westbound lanes of I-20 are blocked before Ga. 113 in Carroll County due to an accident, according to the Department of Transportation. The wreck is expected to clear by 3:45 p.m.

A wreck involving four cars is blocking the left lane of I-85 northbound in Harris County, according to the Department of Transportation. The wreck is expected to be cleared by 4 p.m.
