    Cold Wave to Bring Atlanta Its First Freeze

    The first push of Arctic air of the season will deliver the first freeze to the metro Atlanta area Tuesday night.

    Temperatures are forecast to drop into the 20s Tuesday night in the metro area.

    Despite the return of sunshine Wednesday, temperatures may struggle to top 50 degrees.

    A significant snowstorm will not unfold in Atlanta or anywhere across the East Coast this week.

    A storm could still strengthen across the western Atlantic Ocean, but should do so far enough offshore to prevent an East Coast snowstorm from unfolding.

    However, there can be a few snowflakes over the southern Appalachians and Piedmont areas of North Carolina and Virginia Tuesday afternoon and evening as the cold air drills in.

    Highs in the middle 60s and lows in the middle 40s are more common in Atlanta this time of year.

    Temperatures should moderate later in the week.
