After the rain, cold air moves in ... and snow?

The wind chills will be in the 30s all day on Friday

ATLANTA — Welcome to Georgia - where one day we have thunderstorms and temperatures that hit 70 degrees - and the next day we're talking snow. 

The high temperature on Thursday hit 72 degrees around 10 a.m. and we experienced numerous tornado warnings and watches throughout the day. 

Friday, though, the temperatures will feel like they are in the 30s, with the actual temperature topping off in the low to mid 40s. 

The wind chill at 8 a.m. in Atlanta is going to be 29 -- with the breezy conditions sticking around throughout the day.

So what does this mean moving forward? 

A chance of snow is expected tomorrow. But don't get your hopes up, kids. 

The north metro area may see a few flurries, but with the wind, it'll likely evaporate quickly. Keep your eyes peeled. 

Up in far north Georgia, however, minor accumulation is possible.

What about all this rain on the ground. Will it freeze? 

Temperatures will be hovering around freezing in far north Georgia for a couple hours in the morning, so there is a slight potential for slick spots. 

However, in the metro area, the wind is expected to dry things up and temperatures will be above freezing.

But remember, with the wind and soggy grounds, we could see more trees toppling down. 

Over the weekend, temperatures will continue to rise. On Saturday, we should be in the 50s and on Sunday in the 60s, with much drier conditions.
