SURFACE CHART FIRST HALF OF FRIDAY ABOVE.
As expected the strong cold front that caused yesterdays strong storms and 2-5 inches of rain has now brought back the winter chill for a short visit.
Some passing snow flurries, graupel or sleet today but most of us will just get drizzle light rain or just plain stay dry, precip is expected to be just spotty and light today more dry than wet. No accumulation on roads for Metro Atlanta.
A 28 degree temperature drop today compared to yesterdays high near 70 today only in the low to mid 40s but a wind chill factor this morning making it feel like it’s in the 20s and the wind chill factor will remain around freezing all day so bundle up the kids for school.
Northwest winds gusting to 30 mph or so at times especially the first half of the day could cause a tree to fall in the soggy soils so be careful about that and any lingering flooding.
A fast moving disturbance Saturday could bring brief light showers of rain and snow with accumulation for the mountains. Accumulation in Metro Atlanta can not be ruled out but details are to be determined as new data arrives. Sunday is the best of the weekend.
Temperatures will rebound Sunday afternoon into next week, but another wet pattern is expected early next week as well.
