ATLANTA (AP) — Cold temperatures are in store for Georgia in coming days.
National Weather Service forecasters say a freeze is possible in parts of the northeast Georgia mountains Sunday, as a large area of cold high pressure builds into the region. In that area, temperatures in the Toccoa area are expected to drop to around 32 degrees by early Sunday morning. It's expected to stay mostly dry during that period.
Chilly temperatures are also expected across Georgia Friday evening, when Halloween trick-or-treating is planned in communities across the state.
In metro Atlanta, temperatures are expected to drop into the mid- to upper 30s by early Sunday morning.
The weather service said the average date of the first freeze is Nov. 6 in Athens; Nov. 11 in Macon; and Nov. 13 in Atlanta.
