Weather | Cold, but no snow, for shoppers Thursday night, Friday

Certified Meteorologist Brian Monahan says temperatures will slip back into the 30s later on tonight.

Black Friday shoppers will brave cold weather but thankfully no snow as temperatures will dip starting late Thanksgiving night.

A light sprinkle is possible throughout the holiday with low-level clouds streaming in from the northwest, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Katie Walls. But even the North Georgia mountains aren’t likely to see more than isolated flurries.

“With temperatures above freezing, accumulation wasn’t a factor,” Walls said. She added that temperatures will see highs of upper 40s with a wind chill dipping into the 30s across the metro Atlanta area throughout the day. Thursday night will reach a low of about 30 degrees.

“Tonight, the breeze will be dying down, allowing temperatures to plummet,” Walls added.

Despite concerns earlier this week that a nor’easter would bring rain and snow to the Washington-Boston corridor, Walls said holiday travelers shouldn’t have to worry too much.

“Conditions will continue to improve as the nor’easter moves away from the coast,” she said. “Weather isn’t expected to impact local travel today through the weekend.”

Friday will see a high of 48 and low of 34 degrees. Those cold climes will combine with a sunny afternoon heading into a warmer weekend.

“Temperature will moderate and warm as we head into the weekend,” Walls said. “By Sunday, high temperatures climb into the lower 60s with a mostly sunny sky.”
