While a clear sky dominates the region this evening, a potent Arctic-origin cold front is making steady headway toward the region. The front should arrive in the morning hours of Saturday. Moisture is limited, but there's just enough for addtional cloudiness through much of Saturday. A lobe of upper-level low pressure will trigger a line of mainly light showers Saturday morning through early afternoon, progressing from west to east. Temperatures and conditions locally are not supportive of causing a frozen precipitation concern ... however, travelers to middle or north Georgia may need to be aware of a possible spurt of sleet or flurries. The Arctic air will set us up to experience hard-freeze temperatures Sunday morning. Before that happens, Saturday highs will be suppressed in the lower 50s following morning lows around 40 degrees. North winds will be brisk and wind-chill factors may stay in the 30s and 40s for most of Saturday.
