Atlanta’s notorious weather is at it again. Skipping fall completely and heading straight into winter, extremely cold temperatures are set to break records and perhaps causing the first freeze of the season.
According to CNN, temperatures will be 15-25 degrees below normal for much of the East. To make things worse, winds are set to be strong making it feel even colder that it actually is. Tonight (Tuesday, October 18), will be the coldest night of the week, with Atlanta set to be colder than NYC!

The temperatures will be reaching lows of 35°, so get those sweaters and extra blankets out, y’all! Temperatures should be back to fall’s normality by the weekend. However, it’ll still be pretty cold at night with lows ranging from 43° to 54°, Friday through Sunday (October 21-23)
A freeze warning was issued at 3:34am on October 18, and it will last until 10am on October 19. The severity of the situation has been labelled ‘moderate’, so make sure you stay safe this week, as this big freeze is ‘likely’ to take over the ATL.
Portions of central, east central, north central, northeast and west central Georgia have been issued the same warning, as well as millions of citizens across the SouthEast and the country. Kansas City, Nashville, Memphis, and more, will also be experiencing these freezing temperatures.
We’ll keep you posted on further developments. Keep warm, y’all!
