ATLANTA (AP) — Parts of the north Georgia mountains will be under a wind chill advisory as temperatures begin to plunge at the start of the work week.
Forecasters say the wind chill early Tuesday is expected to drop to 5 degrees or less in the eight-county region that includes the cities of Blairsville, Ellijay, Jasper, Dawsonville and Dahlonega. Wind chill is generally the temperature it feels like due to the combined effects of cold air and wind.
The advisory will be in effect from 4 a.m. Tuesday through 11 a.m. Tuesday. It covers Fannin, Gilmer, Union, Towns, Pickens, Dawson, Lumpkin and White counties.
In Blairsville, the high temperature on Tuesday is expected to remain below zero at 31 degrees before dipping to a low of around 16 early by early Wednesday morning.
