What viewers can only get on Channel 2 Action News:
- Updated hour-by-hour wind and wind chill forecast.
- Updated jet stream and temperature forecast showing the persistent arctic/polar air moving over north Georgia.
- Updated hour-by-hour cloud and precipitation forecast showing the potential for mix/snow showers across north Georgia on Tuesday afternoon/evening.
This forecast comes after a Saturday of subfreezing weather and penetrating wind.
With a high of 39 forecast, that reading did not top freezing until after noon. The average for this date is 52 degrees.
However, the temperature is only part of the story. Wind gusts of up to 30 mph will make the weather feel about 10 to 15 degrees colder than the actual temp.
“It is going to be a very cold next five to seven days across north Georgia,” Monahan said.
A wind chill advisory was in effect for parts of North Georgia for wind chills near 0 degrees.
