First Alert Forecast: Cold start for Sunday

15 April 2018

And, with a saturated ground and top-heavy trees that have leafed out, it's not impossible that a couple of trees are uprooted this afternoon. We could see some of that rain turn over to snow flurries and showers during the overnight hours. Strong winds from the NW and highs only in the low to mid 60s will make Sunday feel nearly winter-like!

Warmer weather will return to the south plains and the rolling plains on Monday and Tuesday with highs climbing back into the upper 80s.

Monday's going to be "a very washout morning", Avery said, so he suggested morning commuters allow for extra time.

By evening, scattered rain and gusty storms will spread over more of north Georgia.
