While the Atlanta area has already had its first frost of the season, the arrival of Arctic air next week has a chance at bringing some snow.

There are multiple scenarios for a storm next week over the eastern third of the nation. These range from a major nor'easter along the coast to a simple sweep of cold, dry air.

One of the scenarios will bring a chance of snow to northern Georgia, the southern Appalachians and the Piedmont late Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Regardless of whether or not the middle of next week has dry weather, a period of cold rain, flurries or even accumulating snow, it will get cold for a couple of days.

High temperatures may rise no better than the 40s. If the storm materializes, there may be a day with temperatures no higher than the 30s.

Temperatures are forecast to rebound by next weekend, but there may be clouds and showers associated with that warmup.
