Atlanta weather | Arctic blast will bring wind chill temps into the teens

Parts of North Georgia will be under a Wind Chill Advisory starting 4 a.m. Tuesday, when temperatures will feel like 5 degrees or less.

 

Temperatures are expected to plummet to the low to mid 20s and only stay in the 30s for the high. Many areas in metro Atlanta will feel like the teens with the wind chill.

Severe Weather Team 2 Chief Meteorologist Gleen Burns says Tuesday will be the coldest morning of the season so far.

Many will wake up to lows in the 20s with 10 to 12 mph winds. Temperatures will climb just above freezing by noon.

Monday night, Channel 2’s Tom Regan spoke to Kroger shoppers on Satellite Boulevard where they were stocking up on firewood. The store manager said hard wood and fire logs have been flying off the shelves.

Marian Webb says it feels more like the conditions he left when he moved from Boston.

“I got my clothes on and layered up; my thermal underwear on. I’m surprised it came this early before Thanksgiving,” he said.

After Monday’s steady showers, metro Atlanta can expect to stay dry through the rest of the week and temperatures will return to the mid 50s by Thursday and Friday.

Watch Channel 2 Action News This Morning beginning at 4:30 a.m. for the breakdown and timing of the frigid temperatures.
