Record-breaking low temperatures are expected the next few days in the Atlanta area.

Arctic air pushing south will cause Monday's high to only reach 27 degrees, but a bitter northwest wind up to 30 mph will push the AccuWeather RealFeel® temperature into the single digits.

It will be clear and breezy Monday night with a low of 6 degrees, which would break the 1970 record of 10 degrees for the date.

It will remain extremely cold into Tuesday, especially in the morning. Highs for the day will likely not climb out of the middle 20s. The low overnight will dip back down into the teens.

A warm-up is coming on Wednesday with a high in the mid-40s for the day, though overnight will stay below freezing. The temperature will continue to increase under a threat of showers through Saturday, when the high will return to the lower 60s.
