Temperatures are dropping and heading into the high 40s before Wednesday morning, according to Channel 2 Action News.

The sun set at 5:29 p.m., and though the temperature is currently 57 degrees, it’s about to get cooler, Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said.

The high on Tuesday was 66 degrees in Atlanta, Nitz said, and LaGrange hit 71 degrees.

Wednesday is expected to start off cold, but not as cold as the average low, Nitz said. Commuters can expect temps in the high 40s.

Rain is not expected through Wednesday, and Thursday’s forecast includes only a 30 percent chance of isolated showers in the evening, Channel 2 reported.

“High pressure to our northeast dominates our region,” Nitz said. “Keeps us dry.”

Above-average temps aren’t expected to go away anytime soon.

Wednesday’s projected high is 69 degrees. Athens, Griffin and LaGrange could see highs in the 70s.

“The long-range temperature outlook is for above-average temperatures through the first week of December,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brian Monahan said.
