The chilliest air of the season so far will yield frosty mornings around Atlanta and the suburbs through Saturday.

Folks heading out in the mornings may need to scrape the windshield and warm the car up for a few minutes beforehand.

In the coldest spots, temperatures can dip to freezing with the coldest morning likely to be Saturday throughout the region.

Tender potted plants should be brought indoors. Plants worth salvaging in the ground should be covered.

A large area of high pressure will drift southward from the Midwest and is forecast to settle over the interior South.

It will not be until later in the weekend when temperatures will begin to rebound.

As a consolation to the chilly air, much of the time will be free of clouds right through Sunday.

Temperatures on Sunday for the Atlanta Marathon will start off in the mid-40s at 7:00 a.m., but will climb into the lower 60s by noon.

There is a chance of temperatures dipping to 32 degrees at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Ga., Saturday morning. For reference, the earliest the temperature has reached freezing at the airport was on Oct. 18, 1948.
