Meteorologist Brad Nitz has your Thursday early evening weather forecast.

Atlanta weather | Warming trend to continue, but cold phases ahead

The tumultuous weather trend of cold then warm then cold again will continue the next couple days, according to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist.

Morning temperatures will dip into the 30s before temperatures climb to the low 60s Friday, meteorologist Brad Nitz said.

“Now as we head through this evening and overnight, [expect] a clear sky,” Nitz said Thursday. “We’re going to be chilly once again and cold tomorrow morning, down into the 30s, with high pressure dominating our weather.”

A southerly wind and sunshine will, however, allow what has been a warming trend to continue, meteorologists said.

Temps were 55 degrees in Atlanta, 50 degrees in Blairsville and 56 degrees in Griffin just before 2:20 p.m.

“As we look ahead, it’s going to be beautiful in the next couple of days,” meteorologist Karen Minton said.

But also expect a lot of variation in the temperatures as part of the normal transition to spring.

Temps will reach 64 degrees by Saturday and 68 degrees Sunday, Minton said.

Also, expect a few clouds Sunday and a chance for showers Sunday night.

Monday could bring a downpour with a 70 percent chance of rain.
