While temperatures are expected to be in the 50s Thursday, a cold front is moving into the metro Atlanta area and may bring rain.

Atlanta can expect to wake up to clear skies and temps in the mid-30s with a high for the day of 56 degrees, Channel 2 Action News Chief meteorologist Glenn Burns said.

While some sprinkles could appear by lunchtime, the 60 percent chance of rain Thursday comes in behind the cold front, in the evening.

“It will be seasonably cool,” Burns said.

But by Friday morning, parts of North Georgia may see a wintry mix.

“There’s going to be a seesaw of temperatures this week,” Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Karen Minton said.

After starting the day in the 30s, it’s 45 degrees in Atlanta. 

Temps are projected to drop to the 40s by the end of the week.

There is “a second chance for sleet and/or a wintry mix in northeast Georgia very early Sunday,” Channel 2 meteorologist Brad Nitz said. 

Don’t worry. No snow or wintry mixes are expected in metro Atlanta.

However, there is an 80 percent chance of rain Sunday, according to the latest forecast.
