Cooler temperatures expected for North Georgia

The summer-like weather pattern North Georgia has been stuck in has started to break down.

An upper area of high pressure controlled the weather, delivering hot temperatures for weeks to North Georgia. Not only were temperatures hot, but dewpoints were high, causing heat indices to soar above 110 degrees.

That upper high has shifted west, shaving several degrees off of temperatures. The flow on the eastern side of this ridge is sending a cold front into North Georgia tonight.

This will spark thunderstorms and drop temperatures over the next 24 hours. Highs on Sunday will primarily be in the mid-80s.
