A Freeze Warning to Start the Spring
Temperatures in Cobb are expected to dip into the low 20s tonight.
Welcome to spring!
But keep out the winter blankets and bring in your pets and plants before going to bed tonight.
While the last day of winter on Tuesday felt like summer, the first full night of spring will feel like the winter overnight.
Cobb County is included in a National Weather Service freeze warning for most of north Georgia, as temperatures are expected to drop into the high 20s in the metro Atlanta area.
Paulding and Douglas counties are also in the freeze warning, which will be in effect from 4 a.m. to 11 a.m. Thursday.
Thursday also will be the last sunny day for a while, with temperatures in the 50s by midday. There will be a slight chance of rain and snow Thursday night, with lows near freezing.
On Friday, a 50 percent chance of rain comes with highs in the 50s, then warming into the 60s on Saturday and Sunday, also with rain in the forecast. Lows are expected to be in the mid 40s Friday and Saturday and down into the high 30s Sunday night.
