ATLANTA, GA — Remember when fall in Georgia still felt like summer? Well, in a few days, it just might feel a little like wintertime.
Georgia’s first freeze of the year is expected as early as Monday morning. According to the National Weather Service, a cold front will hit north Georgia, including metro Atlanta, over the weekend.
Behind that front will be colder air that is forecast to make temperatures in the area plunge.
Early Monday morning, the temperature is forecast to hit freezing in parts of north Georgia, including the north Georgia mountains down to Rome and Dahlonega. Other areas should be near freezing, and the low in metro Atlanta is expected to be about 37 degrees.
That would actually be a slightly late first freeze for the north Georgia mountains, which usually dip below 32 degrees between Oct. 11-18. But, should metro Atlanta’s temperatures get that low, it would be right about on time.
Saturday night is also expected to be a cold one, with overnight temperatures in the Atlanta area dropping down to 38. For those heading out on Halloween night, things will have thankfully warmed up at least a bit.
The low on Tuesday, Oct. 31, is forecast to be 47 degrees — chilly, but not as bad as the couple of nights before.
