January 24, 2003

(Atlanta-AP) -- The temperatures plunged to single-digits overnight across north Georgia, with the cold snap stretching all the way to the Georgia coast.

National Weather Service meteorologist Matt Sena says both Atlanta and Cartersville recorded eight degrees. Marietta reported 7 degrees. Rome and Gainesville dropped to ten degrees, and Athens was 11 degrees.

Other readings include Columbus and Macon, both at 13 degrees; Augusta, 15; and Albany, 14 degrees. On Georgia's coast, Savannah reported 17 degrees and St. Simons Island reported 20.

The initial readings are based on automated recordings, mostly at airports. Sena says some cities may actually have experienced lower readings, which won't be available until volunteers begin reporting their recordings later this morning.

Tonight's forecast calls for temperatures to be a few degrees warmer, with teens across the northern part of Georgia, upper teens to low 20s in middle Georgia and 20s in south Georgia. The forecast calls a gradual warming trend until Sunday, when another storm system is possible.

Sena says north Georgia could see another wintry mix. He says the storm likely will not bring large amounts of precipitation because of its speed and relative lack of moisture.
