    A repeat of Saturday morning's chilly temperatures in Atlanta is not expected in the near future.

    Temperatures at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the official observation site for Atlanta, dropped down to 35 degrees on Saturday morning.

    At 7 a.m. EDT, the temperature at Atlanta (36 degrees) was actually equal to that in Anchorage, Alaska.

    Some communities outside of Atlanta dipped below freezing, but cold in Atlanta was not enough to break Saturday's record low of 29 degrees from 1968.

    An early morning low of 51 degrees is more common in Atlanta this time of year.

    The chill from Saturday morning will not be repeated on Sunday morning with a low of 45 degrees expected.

    Temperatures will be near that low at 7 a.m. for the start of the Atlanta Marathon, before climbing into the lower 60s by noon. A comfortable high of 70 degrees will follow for the afternoon.

    Dry weather will also prevail for the marathon and any Sunday outdoor activities underneath a mixture of sunshine and clouds.

    Temperatures will rebound further on Monday with a morning low of 51 degrees, then an afternoon high of 73 degrees.

    There are no signs of the chill experienced on Saturday morning returning during the remainder of the upcoming week.
