Atlanta's temperature will begin to feel a bit more like spring is nearing.

High temperatures in Atlanta during the first week of March typically are in the lower 60s.

After a cool dip in the temperature on Thursday, Atlanta's temperatures will begin to rebound on Friday as highs approach the mid-50s.

"It's still pretty cold, but we will go to above-average temperatures by Saturday," Pindrock said.

After a cloudier day on Friday, more sun will be featured for the first half of the weekend with temperatures on Saturday making a run towards 70.
