Cold front moving through Georgia Tuesday, drier air arrives Wednesday morning

Monday afternoon was sweltering hot, as thermometers climbed to the mid to upper 90s across the Metro Atlanta area.

Heat index values also climbed into the triple digits, but thankfully, relief is on the way!

A cold front is moving through North Georgia today, bringing scattered showers and thunderstorms to Metro Atlanta through 5pm.

Behind the rain, cooler air will filter into the region, bringing relief to the sizzling hot temperatures the region has endured since early July!

Drier air will also surge into North Georgia as dewpoint temperatures drop into the upper 50s to lower 60s. The lower the dewpoint, the drier the air, and the more refreshing it will feel.

As a result, expect morning temperatures to drop as many as 10 to 15 degrees Wednesday morning compared to the previous... well... 6 weeks.

Afternoon highs will also take a tumble! While upper 80s may not seem like much of a cool down, bear in mind that the majority of July and early August featured daytime highs in the mid to upper 90s! As a result, the cold front will knock daytime highs down by 10 to 15 degrees.
