Arctic Blast

Good evening! For our viewers in North Georgia and Athens, we experienced spine-chilling temperatures today with partly cloudy skies and winds gusting up to 20mph. Unfortunately, this pattern will persist over the next few days. It will not be pleasant as a polar vortex makes its way southward, bringing arctic air that will cause temperatures to drop into the teens across much of Northern Georgia. While the precipitation threat remains minimal for a couple days, the wind chill will make the temperatures feel subzero. 

For tonight, in Athens, the overnight low is expected to drop to 17 degrees with clear skies and no precipitation. The high tomorrow will reach around 41 degrees with winds remaining variable and gusty.

In Northwest Georgia, it will be significantly colder with a potential to drop into the single digits overnight in some mountainous regions and Ball Ground expected to reach a low of 10 degrees. The high tomorrow will reach 35 degrees. Same story as Athens, with winds remaining variable and chances of gusts.

As this polar air lingers, please make sure to keep those faucets on a slow-drip to prevent burst pipes and keep the heat running. Please remember to bundle up for your exceptionally chilly morning commute. Have a wonderful day and stay warm!
